Travel chaos just hours before Fulham vs Tottenham with District Line suspended forcing thousands to find new route | The Sun

TRAVEL chaos has hit Fulham and Tottenham fans just hours before their Premier League clash with the District Line being suspended, forcing thousands to find a new route.

The London Derby is set to get underway at 8pm with gates opening an hour-and-a-half beforehand.

However, thousands of fans will have to find a new route to Craven Cottage after the District Line was suspended.

My London reports that this is due to signal failures.

Another two London Underground lines have been "shut down".

The Circle and Hammersmith & City lines, as well as the Elizabeth line have also been completely suspended.

One fan said to Spurs' announcement on Twitter: "Bit late, on the Uber now cheers!"

Another replied: "Guess I’ll have to walk to the game then."

While others have likened the District Line's suspension to that of their inactivity in the transfer market.

Spurs have advised supporters to check alternative routes, and have listed ways they can get to the stadium on their website.

"Supporters are advised to use TfL’s Journey Planner to plan their journey in advance."
