People commuting home have been faced with train cancellations going through New Cross Gate due to "urgent track repairs".

Trains running between New Cross Gate and West Croydon and Crystal Palace have been suspended as a result.

Trains starting around 5.55pm today (February 21) were affected and the issue is expected to continue until 7.45pm.

Southern and Thameslink trains in the southbound direction towards East Croydon cannot go from any station between Brockley and Anerley.
