Safety inspection cancels Greater Anglia trains between Thorpe-Le-Soken and Walton-on-the-Naze in Essex
No trains are currently able to run on a rural rail line in north Essex because engineers are carrying out a safety inspection of the track.
Rail services running to and from Walton-on-the-Naze have been suspended, with disruption expected to continue until at least 9pm.
Greater Anglia chiefs have said no trains will run between Thorpe-Le-Soken and Walton-on-the-Naze until Network Rail engineers have assessed the site and consider it safe.
Other services running to and from Colchester will be diverted to Clacton-on-Sea.
Both Greater Anglia and Network Rail have apologised for the disruption.
Updates are expected to follow on the rail operator’s JourneyCheck site within the next hour.
