District Line services between Acton Town and Ealing Broadway have been restored, but with severe delays, at around 11am on Wednesday morning, March 2 after being suspended following the derailment of a train at Ealing Broadway on Tuesday night.

There was no service during this morning's rush hour between the station and Acton Town following the incident, which involved a train carrying a small number of passengers.

Steve White, Operations Director for the District line, said: "Following a signal failure towards the end of service last night, a District line train approaching Ealing Broadway station subsequently became derailed as it crossed a set of points.

"No one was injured in this incident and our engineers are working closely with the Rail Accident Investigation Branch on site to investigate."
