Tube problems hit Games travellers
Rail links to the Olympic Park were hit by disruption on Tuesday, as tube trains to the site were suspended during the morning.
An incident in the Leyton area forced trains to terminate at Liverpool Street, affecting Games visitors heading to Stratford on the Central line.
During the incident, which occurred at around 7am, a defective westbound train had to wait for the London Fire Brigade, with station announcers reporting that a fire had affected the vehicle.
Delays were caused by the fire alert, which stopped Central line services between Liverpool Street and Woodford/Newbury Park from running.
As a result of the defective train, tube travellers were told to either take the District or Jubilee lines to Stratford.
However, the incident was not the only one to disrupt those heading towards the Olympic Park, as train services passing through Liverpool Street's main line station were affected by an overhead wire problem.
This problem arose between Elsenham and Stansted Mountfitchet in Essex.
