Major delays are expected for at least two hours on Great Northern trains between Stevenage and London after the electricity supply failed this morning.

A Govia Thameslink spokesman said the electricity supply failure between Stevenage and Alexandra Palace was fixed at about 7.40am, allowing lines from Stevenage to London King’s Cross and Moorgate to reopen – but added that delays were likely to continue until at least 10.30am.

Trains may be cancelled or delayed by 20 minutes or more.

Commuter Michael Aldridge tweeted a photo of a packed train and platform at Stevenage, writing: “Fun at Stevenage. Shocking service, no pun intended.”

There are also tailbacks on the A1(M) southbound this morning between Junction 9 for Letchworth Gate and Junction 7 for Stevenage.

A Herts police spokeswoman confirmed to the Comet that there had not been a crash.
