If you were one of the thousands of rail and tube commuters travelling in to East London this morning you may have encountered some serious delays and we've now found out the reason why.

The delays were due to overhead wire issues at Bethnal Green which led to trains in and out of Liverpool Street station being cancelled. The problems caused trains between Hackney Downs and Liverpool Street to be terminated as well as a reduced service running between Stratford and Liverpool Street.

So there you have it. Don't forget if you complain to TFL you get the money of your travel back so head to their website to complain if your journey was affected.
