ANOTHER day of disruption looms for passengers using the Thameslink line into and out of London.
Delays to First Capital Connect trains between Luton and London St Pancras International are expected to continue until further notice due to the ongoing overhead wire problems at Radlett.
First Capital Connect trains between Luton and London St Pancras International are being delayed by up to 30 minutes.
Passengers may use First Capital Connect (Great Northern route), London Overground and London Underground services on any reasonable route.
East Midlands Trains are no longer being affected by this disruption.

@Andrew6MS said: “The lack of comms from FCC at such a crucial time is poor. Last night’s journey home was horrendous.”
@amcyoung tweeted: “They locked the barriers to let trains go (with space on), ran 4 coach trains, had incorrect timetables & no contingency plans.”
@lauramacarthur said: “Tech problems yesterday understandable, but response not acceptable. More & better comms needed at stations by staff.”
