    On NRE that C2C services are not running between Barking and Upminster due to a Lineside Fire in the Upminster area, thought id check the TFL website and the District line is suspended between Hornchurch and Upminster due to a fire alert at Upminster Bridge.

    Looking on Twitter and BBC Travel, seems its Upminster Bridge station which is on fire, although it may not be 100% certain - anyone able to confirm ?

    The station building (a fair way from the running lines) did appear to be on fire about an hour ago with a couple of fire engines in attendance when I sailed past on a 357.

    The fire is next to the station. Cylinders (possibly gas) involved, so Fire Brigade have asked for all lines to be closed.

    Ah that would explain it then, looks like it may cause a lot of disruption for a while then.
