Commuters traveling from a major London railway station are facing severe disruption after a boy was injured falling from a bridge.

Lines into London Euston were shut as emergency services helped the teenager near Wembley Central station.

British Transport Police said they were called at 16: 25 BST and a male had been “taken to a place of safety”.

Network Rail warned problems would last until the end of service as trains were out of place.
