Train derails outside London Waterloo station



Travellers have been advised to avoid London Waterloo until Thursday after a train derailed outside the station.

 
The train partly left the tracks as it was pulling away from a platform at low speed at 05:40 BST, Network Rail said.


Three people were checked over by London Ambulance Service but nobody was taken to hospital.


Trains are unable to access 13 of the station's 24 platforms as 10 were already closed owing to engineering works to enlarge its capacity.


Public transport in London was further disrupted when a passenger train crashed into buffers at King's Cross station and Holborn Tube station was evacuated because of a fire alert.
