Transport for London have partly suspended the Circle Line amid safety concerns following the Grenfell Tower fire.

No service is running between Aldgate and Edgware Road due to "planned engineering work and the recent fire in the Latimer Road area", according to TfL's official status updates.

The Hammersmith and City Line has been suspended between Edgware Road and Hammersmith due to the blaze four days ago, TfL said.

Coupled with planned engineering work, the safety concerns around the fire mean the Circle Line is closed.

A sign at Ladbroke Grove station said "owing to the safety of the Tower" the lines had been partly suspended.

Transport for London said the move had been made "at the request of the London Fire Brigade".
