TUBE commuters suffered yet more delays today following a signal failure at Aldgate which disrupted services during the height of the morning peak period, writes Dick Murray.
Passengers using the Metropolitan, Circle and Hammersmith & City all suffered delays to their journeys. Signal failures in the Aldgate area have been causing repeated problems during recent months.
There were further delays when someone threw a road sign on to the Tube track at King's Cross. London Underground staff removed the sign without incident.

This is the first I've heard of signals being the cause of a major traffic snarl such as this.
