IT might almost be Christmas, but long-suffering First Capital Connect customers have nothing to smile about this morning.

The Thameslink line suffered cancelled services and delays due to a signalling cable fire in the Brighton area which is preventing FCC from running services beyond Haywards Heath.

Elsewhere, signalling problems at Elephant & Castle and London Blackfriars are causing disruption. Because of this, trains through London Blackfriars may be delayed by up to 20 minutes. These delays will continue until further notice.
