A disruption to train services between London Liverpool Street and Norwich caused by an earlier broken down at Marks Tey, has now ended Greater Anglia said.
Commuters travelling from London Liverpool Street to Norwich had earlier experienced delays because of the broken down train.
The Greater Anglia train which left the capital at 1pm today had stopped at Marks Tey, blocking the line towards Colchester.
A statement on the Greater Anglia website said train services running through Marks Tey “may be cancelled, delayed by up to 60 minutes or revised”.
It warned passengers that disruption was expected until 7pm today.
The statement said: “Due to the nature of the fault a rescue locomotive is being mobilised to enable the train to be moved.
“As a result all Greater Anglia trains between Colchester and Liverpool Street in both directions are currently having to use the Liverpool Street bound platforms at Kelvedon and Marks Tey in both directions.”
