Power cut at Radlett station leaves hundreds trapped on train

St Albans & Harpenden Review: Picture: Martin Stewart Picture: Martin Stewart

Passengers face a miserable afternoon as hundreds have been left stranded on trains due to a power cut.

The electrical fault at Radlett station has also meant the Luton to St Pancras line - which runs through Harpenden and St Albans - has been suspended until further notice.

Initial reports suggest a freight train pulled down the over head wiring at Radlett, but this is unconfirmed.

First Capital Connect workers are trying to free people who are trapped on the trains - but are unsure how long this will take.

People have taken to Twitter to vent their anger, with @DharshiniSky saying: "Shambolic handling of overhead line problems. Now very cold, late and cheesed off."

Tickets are being accepted on alternative routes.
