Greater Anglia have resumed all services between London Liverpool Street and Colchester after a person was hit by a train.
All lines have now reopened between London Liverpool Street and Colchester via Shenfield.
Services were suspended this morning following a person being hit by a train.
The incident occurred between Shenfield and Chelmsford and as a result Greater Anglia services between London Liverpool Street and Braintree, Colchester, Clacton on Sea, Ipswich and Norwich were disrupted.
Services were supposed to be affected until 3pm however Greater Anglia have since announced that the lines have reopened.
Earlier this morning Greater Anglia were warning commuters to avoid travelling between Colchester and London Liverpool Street.
A number of alternative routes are available including Greater Anglia services between Liverpool Street and Norwich via Cambridge and Ely. Journey time from Liverpool Street to Cambridge is 70 to 85 minutes and Cambridge to Norwich 80 minutes.
Greater Anglia tickets will be valid in both directions on the alternative services above.
