Rail passengers vent frustration amid train delays at London stations
Late engineering works close King’s Cross, Finsbury Park shuts after overcrowding and signal fails at Paddington
Passengers struggling to return home after the Christmas break have endured “misery on top of misery” after all services from London’s King’s Cross station to the north were cancelled and the local station where the re-routed trains were due to start their journeys was shut due to the resulting overcrowding.
National Rail confirmed it was forced to temporarily close Finsbury Park in north London due to overcrowding at around 11.30am on Saturday. Large numbers of passengers had arrived there after overrunning engineering works on the east coast mainline meant trains were scrapped at King’s Cross.
