Bakerloo Line: Delays between Harrow and Wealdstone to Queens Park due to casualty

A casualty on the Bakerloo Line resulted in the temporary suspension of train services between Queens Park and Harrow & Wealdstone stations, causing inconvenience for commuters traveling through the Harrow area.

One person tweeted: “Any updates? I’m on the train and they said delay until emergency services get here and even then no trains to euston…”

The incident, the exact location of which remains undisclosed, prompted TfL to temporarily halt train operations on this section of the Bakerloo Line as emergency services respond to the ongoing situation.

The service is now back up and running with minor delays.

As a result, commuters traveling to or from Harrow and Wealdstone were advised to make use of alternative transportation options with London Underground tickets accepted on local bus services.

A spokesperson for British Transport Police said in a statement: “Officers were called to Stonebridge Park at 7am on 29 May following reports of a casualty on the tracks. Paramedics also attended however sadly a person was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The incident is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”
