Disruption is expected until 22:30.

Passengers using Greater Anglia trains running through Colchester can expect delays of up to 30 minutes.

Trains are being delayed along the London line due to safety checks being made to the track.

The 21:00 Colchester Town to Colchester due 21:07 has been cancelled, and the 19:32 London Liverpool Street to Harwich International will be terminated at Colchester due to a train fault.

On their website, the rail operator said: “Owing to a train fault and safety checks being made owing to the train fault services are being delayed between Marks Tey and Colchester. We apologise for the disruption to train services this evening.”

Disruption is expected until 22:30.

  • Please can you explain why you are reporting at 21.14pm that a train that should have arrived at Harwich International at 2054 "will be terminated at Colchester"? Either it 'was' terminated or is very late!
