Advice for Great Northern and Thameslink customers:

Thameslink and Great Northern services are currently unable to run to & from Peterborough due to a failure of the signalling system. This issue is causing major disruption on the route between there and Huntingdon.

Despite extensive efforts, there are no replacement buses available in the area at the moment, and taxis are also very limited.

For this reason, we advise NOT to attempt travel between Peterborough and Huntingdon.

Train service alterations:

Great Northern and Thameslink are running some shuttle trains between Huntingdon and Stevenage, and between London Bridge and Horsham, to replace trains which usually run between Peterborough and Horsham.

However, there will still be a number of cancellations, and some further alterations and diversions.

Other train companies in the area are also affected.
