“Abellio Greater Anglia would like to apologise to our customers affected by these alterations, and for the inconvenience this may cause.

“We would like to assure passengers that we are doing everything possible to complete the necessary repairs to these trains as quickly as we can.”

The buses will depart from Marks Tey and Sudbury at the booked train departure times,
