Services on the Abbey Line are being cancelled this evening due to a broken down train.

National Rail says the incident means trains will be unable to run between Watford Junction and St Albans Abbey.

The disruption is set to last until the end of the day, which may cause commuters lengthy delays this evening.

Buses have been requested to run in place of the cancelled services.

National Rail has advised passengers to use their tickets on the 321 Arriva bus route between Watford and St Albans Abbey.

This comes following a day of disruption on the Abbey Line. Earlier this morning a faulty train meant no trains were running between Watford Junction and St Albans Abbey until 1pm.
