RAIL passengers are facing lengthy delays after a woman was hit by a train on the mainline service – but the lines have now reopened.

Greater Anglia reported that the woman was struck by a train between Colchester and Marks Tey.

All lines have now been reopened but cancellations and delays are expected to last until 2pm.

A British Transport Police (BTP) spokesman said: “BTP officers were called to the line close to Chitts Hill, Colchester, on Thursday, 22 November following a report that a woman had been struck by a train.

“BTP and Essex Police officers attended the incident, which was reported to BTP at 10.58am and is currently being treated as non-suspicious.
