If getting up for work wasn’t bad enough, Londoners are facing a morning of severe delays on the Tube.

The Central and Hammersmith & City Tube lines are all facing delays this morning, as is the Elizabeth line.

The entire Central Line has become paralysed, TfL says, due to a ‘late finish to engineering work’.

While the transport authority says London Underground tickets will be accepted on the Elizabeth line, this line is also facing delays.

‘Minor delays Paddington to Heathrow/Reading while we fix a track fault in the Hayes & Harlington area. GOOD SERVICE on all other routes,’ TfL says on its status updates webpage.

There are also severe delays between Liverpool Street in the heart of London’s financial district and commuter hotspot Barking due to ‘earlier faulty trains’.

There is a good service on the rest of the network.
