Rail services between Norwich and London have been returning to normal after thousands of passengers experienced delays and cancellations.

Services from Norwich, Ipswich, Clacton-on-Sea, Colchester and Braintree to Liverpool Street were hit by delays of at least 90 minutes.

The delays were due to a signalling fault in the Chelmsford area.

Network Rail said the fault was identified and fixed by 11:00 BST but there would be residual delays.

A spokesman said: "We would like to apologise to Greater Anglia and their passengers for the disruption to their journeys today - we know many people will have had a difficult journey to work this morning."
