There will be delays and cancellations until 10am after a passenger took ill on a train between Barnes and London Waterloo.  

The affected routes are between Weybridge, Richmond and Waterloo.

In a statement The South Western Railway said: “The SWR control room has received reports of a passenger requiring medical assistance on a train.

“SWR is in contact with colleagues in the area and emergency services are en route, however until they have arrived, the train will not move and is blocking one of lines towards London.

“Due to the location of the incident, and that it is during peak time, trains running through the area will experience delays, and may have to be altered to manage the overall service.”
