Trains between London Liverpool Street and East Anglia are facing disruption for more than two hours after flooding caused major signal failures.
The flooding comes following a period of heavy rain across the capital and the east of England earlier today.
As a result, train services running to and from the station are facing cancellation or delays of up to 60 minutes.
Engineers from Network Rail have successfully re-opened the lines, although disruption is expected to continue until 8pm.
Stansted Express services are also facing cancellation.
