London-bound rail commuters in the region have been dealt a second blow this morning after a points failure led to delays on top of earlier troubles caused by signalling issues.
Greater Anglia said services were having to run at reduced speed due to a points failure between Stratford and Forest Gate on the Great Eastern Mainline this morning.
“Train services running through these stations may be delayed by up to 15 minutes,” a spokesman added.
“Disruption is expected until 11am.”
Services from Ipswich, Norwich, Clacton-on-Sea, Braintree, Colchester and Colchester Town towards London Liverpool Street have been affected.

The failure follows earlier signalling problems on the line at Ingatestone.
