UK weather – live updates: Thunderstorm alert for parts of UK today – as bookies are tipping more ‘extreme heat’ next month | UK News

No trains running from London to Scotland, all trains out of King’s Cross cancelled and ‘do not travel’ warnings in place

Rail services are still suffering from serious disruption due to yesterday’s extreme heat, with a major London station having to cancel all trains.

Fed-up passengers surrounded by suitcases and bags have been seen sitting around King’s Cross as they wait for news. 

Some slept on suitcases, tables and benches. 

Network Rail has said there are currently no trains running from London to Scotland as engineers are still working to fix faults. 

Passengers who boarded last night’s Caledonian Sleeper – which connects Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverness and Fort William with London Euston – spent the night on board trains held at London, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Operators including LNER and Thameslink have issued “do not travel” warnings. 

Meanwhile, Eurostar passengers faced delays of more than an hour due to a power failure in Lille.
