Engineers investigate 'tunnel obstruction' on London Underground

The Bakerloo Line has been suspended on London Underground this morning due to what Transport for London was describing as ‘an obstruction in a tunnel’ at Embankment.

It is believed that no-one was injured in the incident which is causing severe delays on the Bakerloo Line, with engineers currently on site assessing the problem.

TfL initially announced that there were severe delays due to a fire alert at Embankment and there were unconfirmed reports of a tunnel collapse.

TfL later tweeted: “There is no tunnel collapse on the Bakerloo line. Our engineers are on site and we are assessing the situation.”

Up to 1,000 Tube Lines maintenance workers are currently undergoing a 72-hour strike on the Piccadilly, Northern and Jubilee lines.
