Waterloo Train Derailment

There are delays at Waterloo this morning following the 'partial derailment' at the station yesterday evening.

The last two carriages of a South West Trains service from Dorking came off the tracks as it entered Platform 2 at the station at around 6:30pm. Thankfully the carriages stayed upright and no-one was injured and passengers were able to walk to safety through the other carriages and through the driver's cab at the rear of the train.

An investigation has now begun into what happened and disruption is expected through today as trains are still unable to access platforms one to four as the two derailed carriages have blocked the entrance to the station.
