This morning a 68 year old was struck by a train and killed at Surbiton station. Delays to South West train network following this were compounded by an IT fault which affected all National Rail information systems throughout the day.
Commuters faced severe delays to trains leaving Waterloo and throughout the network as well as trains changing their routes due to staff and trains being out-of-place.
