Trains in south-east London and north Kent are disrupted this lunchtime as a result of signalling problems.

Southeastern is warning that trains may be cancelled, delayed by up to 30 minutes or otherwise altered because of issues between Woolwich Dockyard and Charlton.

Several trains this afternoon between central London - Charing Cross and Cannon Street - and Barnehurst, Gravesend, Dartford and Hayes have been cancelled. A number of other trains will be diverted. Disruption is expected until at least 3.30pm.

You can use your ticket on the DLR between Woolwich Arsenal, Lewisham and Greenwich, on the Tube, or on buses between Dartford and Greenwich.
