First Capital Connect and East Midlands Trains are suspended up to Luton, with delays of more than an hour and a half.

Network Rail say the issue is likely to go on into Thursday morning and will significantly affect the rush hour.

It is believed that up to 1km of overhead cables have been dislodged and engineers are currently working to fix the issue.
