Disruption will last through the morning rush hour

Passengers on the morning commute are facing delays and diversions after a commuter was taken ill at Blackheath.

North Kent and Bexleyheath line services have reopened following an earlier closure, though delays are expected to remain until after 9am.

Trains from Blackheath towards Lewisham were suspended to allow paramedics to treat the patient.

Disruption is expected until 9.15am.

A spokesperson from Southeastern said: “While services recover, trains running through this station may be delayed or diverted.

“You can use your ticket on London Underground services to help you complete your journey, at no extra cost.

“You may be entitled to compensation if you experience a delay in completing your journey today. Please keep your train ticket and make a note of your journey, as both will be required to support any claim.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
