Disruption on train services between Norwich, Ipswich, Clacton, Braintree, Colchester and London Liverpool Street is expected until 1pm after a line-side fire.

Due to the fire between Bethnal Green and Stratford, some lines are blocked and services departing London Liverpool Street going to Norwich, Ipswich, Clacton, Braintree and Colchester are being delayed up to 30 minutes due to one track out of Liverpool Street being blocked.
