London Overground services disrupted

Services on the London Overground network have been disrupted after engineers were forced to take trains off the tracks amid "safety" fears, BBC reports.

Part of the braking system is understood to have fallen off from one of its trains "within the last week".

As a result the network's branches to Croydon, Crystal Palace, New Cross Gate and Highbury and Islington have all been forced to close.

Transport for London say the "extra safety checks" has resulted in a "shortage of trains".

The problems have caused severe delays on other parts of the network at Richmond, Clapham Junction and Willesden Junction.
