Morden Underground station had to be closed for part of this morning after a fire broke out.

Making the announcement on Twitter just after 7am, the account for the Northern Line said: "Services are currently suspended between Tooting Broadway and Morden; Severe delays between Kennington and Tooting Broadway.

"Please use an alternative route for now - we'll keep you updated."

A little more than 30 minutes later, trains were running again.

But this is expected to cause big delays for peak hour commuters.


"Train services are now running again with severe delays between Morden and Kennington," the Northern Line account added.

"Where possible, please continue to seek alternative routes to reach your destination."
