Trains are being cancelled this morning due to a tree blocking the tracks.

Commuters wishing to travel between Watford Junction and St Albans Abbey this morning (June 3) through the London Northwestern Railway have faced travel disruptions.

The service warned that a tree was blocking the railway between the two stations, and services running to and from these stations may be cancelled.

It was stated that this would last until around 10am.

In an update, the tree has been removed and lines have reopened, but there may still be cancellations or delays up until 10.30am.

Anyone wishing to travel today is advised to use the live departures and arrivals page to plan the journey.

The incident was reported at around 6am and rail replacement buses have been requested to run.

The 321 Arriva bus between Watford Junction and St Albans can also be used.
