Croydon commuters furious after a day of rail chaos

CROYDON commuters were left fuming and frustrated after rail chaos delayed their morning and evening rush-hour journeys on the first day back after Christmas for many workers. Engineering works at London Bridge Station led to delays and cancellations while, this evening, commuters spoke of "dangerous" overcrowding at the station. Southern and Thameslink services were the worst affected, right from the morning rush-hour, where confused travellers crowded onto the platforms at East Croydon, unable to catch their usual services to the capital. Platforms are being rebuilt at London Bridge in improvement works costing millions of pounds, but today's experiences have prompted fears that rush hour disruption will be a common occurence over the coming few months. Passengers weren't shy in expressing their anger on social media throughout the day.

Also on Twitter, Croydon Central MP Gavin Barwell promised to take up commuters' complaints with Southern, describing the situation as "not good enough". As of 10.30pm on Monday, Southern was still warning passengers to expect delays of up to an hour through London Bridge.
