London tube strike
Huge delays on the London Underground this morning Reuters

Thousands of commuters faced huge delays on all routes on the London Underground this morning (27 April) due to a fatality on the track on the Victoria line.

The line between Brixton and Warren Street has reopened after the customer incident at 6.15am on a northbound platform at Victoria station. But passengers are still being warned of delays on the line and the rest of the tube network.

The person was declared dead at the scene by paramedics.

Peter McNaught, operations director for the Victoria line, said: "I apologise to Victoria line customers whose journeys have been delayed this morning. This was because of a person under a train at Victoria Tube station at around 6.15am.

"We worked with the emergency services to help the person involved and we worked hard to restore services as quickly as possible following the incident."
