Over-running engineering works are causing disruption to services on the mainline in Suffolk and Essex this morning.
Greater Anglia said the problems had caused some lines to be blocked between Hackney and London Liverpool Street, affecting services including the Great Eastern Mainline between Norwich and London.
Many of the busy early morning services towards the capital have been delayed or cancelled as a result.
Trains calling at stations including Chelmsford, Colchester, Manningtree, Ipswich, Stowmarket and Diss have been affected by the disruption.
Services between London Liverpool Street and Stansted have also been affected.
