Trains to London Liverpool Street from Suffolk and Essex are being disrupted due to flooding caused by heavy rain.

Rail operator Greater Anglia said that trains “may be cancelled, delayed or revised” due to the problems at Colchester.

In a Tweet, it said: “Train services from Colchester towards London Liverpool Street are being disrupted due to flooding.

“As a result trains services are running at a reduced speed causing congestion leading to delays, alterations and possible cancellations to some train services through #Colchester.”

“Greater Anglia and Network Rail are sorry if your journey has been affected by this disruption.”
