Trains stranded, Glastonbury washed out

More than 800 commuters have been trapped in a broken down underground train in London. It follows a similar incident yesterday in which passengers were trapped in sweltering heat on a train near Peterborough. The Tube train came to a halt between Bank and St Paul’s underground station at 08:30 BST [07:30 GMT]. The passengers were eventually evacuated two hours later after enduring temperatures as high as 38C. In complete contrast Glastonbury festival has been hit by heavy rain. The deluge occurred at around 04:00 BST [03:00 GMT]. Much of the site has become waterlogged and performances were cancelled for safety reasons.
