Greater Anglia services in and out of Clacton have resumed after a person was hit by a train.

All services in and out of the coastal town were cancelled as a result of the collision, between Clacton and Alresford earlier this morning.

Rail replacement buses had been arranged from 9.05am between Clacton and Thorpe Le Soken for passengers to board services to the capital.

All lines have since reopened, with the first train to run set to be the 10.05am service to London Liverpool Street.

A Greater Anglia spokesman said earlier via Twitter: "We're sad to report that a person has been hit by a train between Alresford and Clacton on Sea, and as such we cannot run any trains to/from Clacton.

"Greater Anglia and Network Rail are sorry if your journey has been affected by this disruption."
