Limehouse Link eastbound tunnel to remain closed


The eastbound tunnel of the Limehouse Link connecting the Docklands to Central London is to remain closed until the middle of next week following a fire on a double decker bus. The out of service bus caught light 160m into the 1.5km long tunnel at 6.20am on Sunday.

The bus was destroyed in the blaze which damaged tunnel lighting, cabling and some panelling. There was no serious structural damage.
