Trains have been delayed from St Albans to London after a passenger was ill this morning.

Commuters should expect ten minutes of disruption on the Thameslink line until 8.45am.

This has arisen after a passenger was taken ill on the 6.54am Bedford to Brighton service at West Hampstead Thameslink, and the southbound line was temporarily blocked.

Although all lines are now open, there are some residual delays while congestion gets back to normal.
