Rail passengers between Suffolk and London Liverpool Street are facing delays due to an earlier broken down freight train in Essex.

The troubled train came to a halt between Marks Tey and Kelvedon on the line heading towards the capital.

But the faulty train is now back on the move at a reduced speed.

Greater Anglia say disruption could continue until 11pm, with services being cancelled or delayed.

It is also having an effect on the Norwich-bound line, with the 9.30pm London Liverpool Street to Norwich service among the cancellations.
