It has just been reported on the 10.30pm BBC London TV news that Thameslink have closed the line between St Pancras and Farringdon until tomorrow (Thursday) evening AT THE EARLIEST while Thames Water work to try to find the cause of the flooding in the Clerkenwell tunnel between St Pancras and Farringdon.

Thameslink have cancelled 1,000 trains since last Friday, and have had at least five trains damaged by the flooding. They have warned of further disruptions and running short trains once the service is restored.

A Thames Water spokesman admitted that they do not know where the source of the flooding is, though work is going on to try to find out and then effect repairs. He admitted that it was not possible to give an estimate of when the flooding problems would be resolved.

It was further reported that Network Rail would be submitting a claim of at leat £1 million against Thames Water for the service disruption.

In the light of the above, it might be best to assume no service between St Pancras and Farringdon on Saturday. Whether services to the south will start from Farringdon or Blackfriars (or further south?) is a moot point and something that will need to be checked.
