Rail commuters are facing delays this evening because of a points failure at Witham.

Some lines have been blocked as a result of the incident and services running between London and Ipswich are being delayed as a result.

Among those services affected are the 5.38pm service from London Liverpool Street to Ipswich and the 5.50pm train from Liverpool Street to Norwich.

Work is currently taking place to fix the problem.

A Greater Anglia spokesman said: “We thank you for your patience and understanding whilst this problem is being fixed.”

You could be forgiven for thinking there was some sort of carriageway cryptology going on in Boxford at the moment – with drivers facing messages like ‘S’ and ‘7’ when they arrive in the picturesque Suffolk village.
