A train line in Essex has been disrupted after a train hit a deer.
The train was stuck on the tracks between Dovercourt and Harwich International after an air pipe burst, causing the brakes to fail following a collision with the animal.
The train service between Manningtree and Harwich Town has been suspended and a rail replacement bus service is in operation.
Delays are expected until 10am and train services running through Manningtree and Harwich Town may be cancelled, delayed or suspended.
Passengers are advised that advance purchase tickets holders will be allowed to travel on earlier or later trains if their booked service is cancelled.
