Passengers have reported being stranded this evening after a serious incident occurred in which one person and a train driver were reported to be injured.

A collision involving a person and a train between London Euston and Watford Junction has resulted in severe disruption at Euston — one of London's busiest stations.

Some have been stuck on non-moving trains for at least three hours, while others have been left at the station past midnight with no way to get home.

A tweet from Euston posted just after 12am on Friday morning read: "All lines are still blocked due to an incident at #HarrowandWealdstone Emergency services are on site so we can’t reopen until everyone is safely off the railway

"We’re sorry to those of you caught up in the disruption. We’re doing our best to get you moving."

Meanwhile, a number of passengers took to the platform to express their frustration at having their nights thrown into disarray, with a user named smallnorth writing: "My 10pm train left Euston, got stuck in an 'incident' at Harrow and got sent back to Euston.

"Been on it for 3hrs now and am 0 miles closer to home."

Another replied with further information around half an hour later, saying: "Coming into to Euston, our announcer has just said emergency services still working as the driver was also seriously injured!"
