Chaos As Major Power Outage Hits London

A major power outage hit London during the evening rush hour disrupting the city's transit services and affecting half a million people.

A rush-hour power cut has caused major disruption on rail and Tube services in London and the South East...Stations and trains were evacuated as commuters using the Tube were plunged into darkness and some were stuck underground...Buses quickly became extremely busy and lines of people waiting for taxis grew as commuters abandoned packed Tube platforms... Mayor of London Ken Livingstone said at least 250,000 people were affected and said the situation showed the need for a serious look at the National Grid and why power went down for so long.
