Commuters in Ipswich are facing a morning of possible disruption after a broken down train forced lines to close earlier today.

Abellio Greater Anglia said all lines had reopened as of 7.20am, however it warned that services may be delayed by up to 15 minutes.

Disruption is expected to last until 8.45am.

“We thank you for your patience and understanding,” a spokesman for the rail operator said.
