Platforms reopen after Waterloo derailment Platforms reopen after Waterloo derailment

Disruption has eased at London Waterloo today after one bogie of a Class 456 unit derailed as it was leaving Platform 13 about 05.40 yesterday, tilting the leading driving car into the side of wagons involved in this month’s blockade. No one was injured, but the incident caused serious disruption to services, while an unrelated points failure meant that the former international platforms 20 to 24 were also isolated. Other incidents which have been disrupting services include a slow-speed buffer stops collision at King’s Cross and a derailed freight train near Ely.
