Rail passengers face delays in north-east Essex after plastic sheeting became caught up in overhead electric wires.
Train operator Abellio Greater Anglia (AGA) said the plastic sheeting issue took place between Colchester and Marks Tey at around 1.30pm, causing some lines to become blocked.
Services running through these stations may be cancelled, delayed by up to 15 minutes or revised.
Disruption is expected to last until 3.45pm.
An AGA spokesman said: “Owing to plastic wrapped around the overhead line, the London bound line is currently blocked between Colchester and Marks Tey.
