Flooding in Wimbledon this morning (January 9) has caused travel disruption.

Wimbledon station is currently flooded - meaning that Thameslink trains are unable to call there.

Thameslink says that disruption is expected to continue until midday.

This is only affecting Thameslink as South Western services are stopping as normal.

Trams are also disrupted due to the flooding and will not be calling between Wimbledon and Dundonald Road, with services starting and terminating at Dundonald Road Tram Stop.

Platforms nine and ten at Wimbledon station were already out of use due to a sewage leak that was reported on Saturday, January 7.

Trains were still running through the station but were not stopping.

Thameslink and Network Rail claim they have already sent their contractors to the site but further specialist work is needed.

Work on the sewage leak will begin today and Thameslink are awaiting further updates.

You can use alternative local stations such as Wimbledon Chase or Haydons Road at no extra cost and tickets will be accepted on London Buses services between Tooting, Wimbledon and Sutton.

South Western Railway services will also be accepting Thameslink tickets between Wimbledon, Clapham Junction and London Waterloo District Line services to and from Wimbledon, and London Underground services on other reasonable routes will also be accepted.

Thameslink tweeted: "We are still unable to stop at Wimbledon due to the platforms being flooded.

"This is only affecting Thameslink services, Southwestern can stop as normal."
