Description

A lorry collided with a bridge at London Victoria, causing disruption to trains to / from the station.

Train services running to and from London Victoria may be cancelled or delayed by up to 20 minutes.

Disruption is expected until 21:30

Southern and Gatwick Express services are no longer affected by this disruption 

What's happened?

A lorry became lodged under the bridge earlier, but has now been removed. Bridge examiners have found some damage to the bridge so one line remains closed whilst safety inspections continue.

How does this affect my journey?

Some trains may be delayed or revised because there is reduced capacity available to and from Victoria station.
