Will be fun at Euston

COMMUTER journeys have been plunged into chaos after a train derailed in a tunnel and smashed into another service because of a landslide near Watford Junction.

No injuries have been reported after the 6.19am service from Milton Keynes to London Euston came off the tracks.

An announcement said the derailment was due a “landslide” likely to be caused by heavy rain.

A spokesman from London Midland and Virgin said services would be “severely disrupted” from the north-west of England, Scotland, and the Midlands.

Thankfully looks like no-one is injured, apparently hit another train also.

My garden is now a pond (just need the ducks)

The overground was still working, so I guess, it was life as usual. Keep calm and carry on.
