A fallen tree has caused cancellations to Greater Anglia trains between Suffolk and Essex this morning.

The Marks Tey to Sudbury line is currently suspended, with replacement bus services arranged for travellers at those stations.

Network Rail and Greater Anglia have both informed the public that the tree, which has fallen on the track between Sudbury and Bures, has led to two trains being cancelled.

Sudbury station is also reportedly without power and lighting, according to members of the public.

In a tweet, Greater Anglia said: "Train services between Marks Tey and Sudbury is disrupted this morning due to a tree on line near Bures.
