London Overground services from Brent and South Hampstead to Euston will be running more regularly, Transport for London has announced.

TfL is introducing more trains onto the network and will look to run four an hour during peak morning and evening times. This will eventually be extended across the whole of the service as the authority phases in new electric trains.

Rory O'Neill, TfL's general manager for London Overground, said: "We are pleased to be able to introduce additional trains on the Watford Junction to Euston route to help boost the service on the line during peak times.

"The phased introduction of these trains is an important step in delivering the improved four trains per hour service we have promised our customers."
