Passengers may be entitled for compensation

The wind and rain are wreaking havoc with rail services this morning, as trains via Sidcup face cancellation, delays and revision.

A tree has fallen on the line at Albany Park, meaning rail services between Dartford and London Charing Cross / London Cannon Street via Sidcup are facing disruption.

Initially Southeastern had hoped for the service to return to normal by 11am, but it has now been put back to midday.

Passengers are able to use tickets on London Underground between London terminal stations at no extra charge.

A spokesperson from Southeastern added: “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.”
