Rail services between Ipswich and London are back up and running following earlier disruption caused by a broken down freight train.
Earlier this afternoon lines heading towards the capital were blocked because of the fault and the disruption it caused.
A spokesman for Greater Anglia said: "Due to a fault on a freight train between Colchester and Marks Tey, services will be disrupted.
"Services will be changed onto the opposite line to pass the freight train, which will delay trains through the area in both directions."
Freight engineers will be working on the train to get passengers moving again, however the train will need to be rescued and will therefore cause disruption.
