South Western Railway say there's some electricity problems causing issues on the main line in to the capital.

The power supply has been down between Clapham Junction and London Waterloo, which means trains from Salisbury are being disrupted today (Tuesday February 12th).

SWR has tweeted about the problems:

Some trains from our part of the network have been able to get through to London, but going on the suburban line, which is slower.

We're warned that there might be some disruption throughout most of the day.
