A trespasser on the tracks has caused chaos on the Elizabeth line just before rush hour, affecting east London stations.

There are severe delays on the whole line this afternoon, with no service between Hayes and Harlington and Reading following the incident.

This is due to a trespasser on the tracks in the Ealing Broadway area, according to Transport for London (TfL).

The Elizabeth line serves Romford, Stratford, Ilford and Chadwell Heath among other east London stations.
