Rail passengers between London and Norwich have been facing delays of more than an hour after storms brought a tree down on to overhead power lines.

The tree came down on a section of line near Ingatestone at about 17:00 GMT, causing problems to services in and out of London Liverpool Street.

Engineers have been on site to clear the line but trains between Colchester and Norwich have also been affected.

Passengers are advised to check with National Rail before travelling.

Train services were being terminated and started at Witham and Colchester.

Marks Tey to Sudbury services have been suspended until further notice and arrangements were being made for a rail replacement bus to operate between Marks Tey and Sudbury and between Shenfield and Witham.

Customers have been told First Capital Connect and London Underground are accepting Greater Anglia ticket holders for passengers to travel via Cambridge into London Kings Cross.
