Passengers will be experiencing major rush hour chaos today as one of London’s busiest railway stations, Paddington, will remain shut following disruption which started overnight.



National Rail said overhead electric wires were “severely damaged” on Tuesday evening, stopping trains running in and out of the west London hub. Following this disruption, all Great Western Railway (GWR) trains between Paddington and Slough had been cancelled until at least midday.

Trains between Paddington and Heathrow airport are also not running. However, a rail replacement bus service is running between Paddington and Heathrow.

London Underground and bus services are accepting tickets, Transport for London (TfL) said.
