There are severe delays on the Victoria line caused by a trespasser on the line.

The delay was reported this afternoon as a customer incident by Transport for London.

There is currently no service between Walthamstow Central and Kings Cross.

But tickets are being accepted on London Buses, Greater Anglia to/from Tottenham Hale - Liverpool Street, South Eastern (Victoria to Brixton) and London Overground.

British Transport Police were dispatched to the scene and escorted the trespasser from the line.

British Transport Police have been approached for comment.
