Passengers are facing severe delays on five Tube lines on Monday morning, including on routes to Heathrow Airport.

Transport for London said there were severe delays on the Piccadilly, Victoria, Circle and Hammersmith and City Lines.

In addition, the Overground was part-suspended from Gospel Oak to Barking Riverside, while the District Line was part-suspended between High Street Kensington and Edgware Road.

The Piccadilly Line disruption was caused by a signal failure at Holborn, while a signal failure at Highbury & Islington hit the Victoria Line.

Disruption at Hammersmith and City and Circle Lines was caused by a broken down train at Edgware Road, which has also severely delayed Metropolitan Line services.

Earlier on Monday, commuters were hit by delays on the Elizabeth Line due to another faulty train, but this has since been resolved.
