Rail services are facing disruption in Suffolk and Essex due to a points failure affecting the region’s mainline connection with London.

Greater Anglia said a points failure at Ilford had blocked lines causing cancellations, delays and revisions.

Disruption is expected until 3pm.

“This is affecting trains on the line into London,” a spokesman said.

“Also, train services travelling in the opposite way towards Shenfield are affected.

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