Wembley Park crowded in freezing cold amid Jubilee delays

Tube travellers reportedly faced two-hour delays in freezing temperatures this morning – with one platform full to the brim amid travel chaos.

There have been severe delays on the Jubilee line throughout this morning (January 17) due to signalling failures and a faulty train at Willesden Green.

While such travel disruptions are a daily occurrence on the London underground, many travelling to work today were left outraged as they were stuck outside in massive crowds during -1C temperatures.

Overlooking the platform, there were even more commuters lining up to get onto the platform and recording the spectacle.

Once finally able to get on a train, people were walking down the carriages to fill it up.

Christian David Alonzo, who left at 7am for an early start at work, said he was hours late – finally arriving at 10am.

Another passenger tweeted that the Jubilee line is “hell on Earth”.

The Metropolitan line is also not running between Wembley Park and Aldgate.
