"Services between Liverpool Street, Southend Victoria, Braintree, Clacton-on Sea, Ipswich and Norwich will be, cancelled, delayed, or starting and terminating at Stratford and Shenfield.
"Specialist Network Rail telecoms engineers are currently on site, investigating the cause of this fault and looking to fix the fault.
