Fire at London Bridge Station Sparks Major Train Disruptions

A fire at London Bridge Station caused major disruptions to London’s rail network on Friday evening, May 19.

Thameslink said a fire had occurred next to the tracks near platforms six and seven.

While southbound services resumed on Friday night, northbound services were diverted.

“If you are travelling northbound towards London Bridge, you will need to use an alternative route to reach your destination,” Thameslink said.

The rail operator did not say when the station would become fully operational again. Credit: @Yuiiski via Storyful
