Thousands of passengers were affected when a lorry struck a rail station.
The vehicle collided with a railway bridge near Herne Hill Station on Half Moon lane at around 10:51am today, causing trains to and from London from West Dulwich and Sutton to be delayed.
Delays were caused by extensive safety checks, which have to take place every time a vehicle strikes a railway bridge, according to the National Rail.
The lines are now clear and trains are running normally.
