Tube users are experiencing severe delays on the Central Line following the derailment of a train on Thursday.

The line remains closed in both directions between Leytonstone and Liverpool Street, in east London.

A special bus service is running and Tube tickets are being accepted on buses and some mainline rail services.

Safety checks are under way on the Tube's storage facilities after a dislodged roll of tarpaulin landed on the tracks, causing the derailment.
Three carriages came off the rails on a westbound Central Line between Mile End and Bethnal Green during the morning rush hour.
