It was a cold wait for passengers lining the platforms at Ipswich station this morning, with snow settling and an icy wind whipping around them.

Describing her morning, Anita Curtis said: ““After a hazardous drive to the station this morning, I only just managed to get on the train.

“On walking through it was apparent that it was one or maybe two coaches short.

“I did, however, just manage to get a seat in coach B. Unfortunately those getting on at Manningtree and Colchester were not so lucky.

“The train was then delayed at Chelmsford due to signal problems and an earlier broken down train. We arrived in London 20 minutes behind schedule.”

Last night she said: “Normal train set tonight and my coach was nice and warm.

“The train was delayed on way home due to following late running services. We were 10 minutes late at Ipswich.”
