People travelling on the DLR service this morning may be in for some delays after protesters set up shop on top of the service.

Shortly after 7.15am this morning officers from British Transport Police were called to Canary Wharf station after a number of protesters had climbed on top of a DLR service.

"Specialist units trained in protester removal were immediately deployed and are now working to safely remove those obstructing the DLR service," a BTP statement read.

"There are no arrests at this time.

"Some DLR services may be disrupted while teams respond, please check with Transport for London before you travel.

"Officers will continue to work alongside the Metropolitan Police Service, City of London Police and TfL to keep transport disruption in London to a minimum."

The Canary Wharf line of the DLR serves passengers coming from Lewisham, Deptford Bridge and Greenwich.
