A person has been struck by a train on the main rail line between London Liverpool Street and Norwich, Greater Anglia bosses have said.

Passengers travelling between the two stations are being advised that they may face severe disruption while the incident is investigated.

According to the rail operator’s JourneyCheck tool, services are currently being delayed by up to 15 minutes.

Disruption is expected to continue until at least 4pm.

Chiefs wrote on their website: “Due to a person hit by a train between Bethnal Green and Maryland, trains have to run at reduced speed on some lines.

“Train services running through these stations may be delayed by up to 15 minutes.”

British Transport Police have been contacted for comment.
