A tunnel has collapsed at London Marylebone train station after being battered by rain.

Chiltern Railways has urged passengers to avoid travelling with them to and from the capital but confirmed soon after 10am that services had resumed.

The old train station was so badly affected by Tuesday night's wind and torrential downpour that one of its tunnels caved-in.

A structural fault in the St John's Wood tunnel was identified during an earlier inspection. It has now been repaired and trains have started running through the tunnel again.

A platform announcement confirmed to passengers at Marylebone that cancellations were caused by a tunnel collapse.

Chiltern Railways tweeted on Wednesday morning: "DO NOT TRAVEL TO/FROM LONDON MARYLEBONE."

The train line later posted: "UPDATE: Services are now able to run to/from London Marylebone. Please be aware that late notice delays, alterations and cancellations may occur. Ticket acceptance is in place on other operators via any reasonable route."

A passenger travelling south took to Twitter to share their relief of pulling into Marylebone as scheduled.

They wrote: "I’m on a train that says we are now able to continue through to Marylebone. It was the 8:30 from Banbury originally scheduled to stop at West Ruislip"
