The 14:00 from Norwich to Liverpool Street, which had called at Diss, Stowmarket, Ipswich, and Colchester hit an individual in the vicinity of Witham station.

All services were immediately cancelled. Trains to London are being curtailed at Colchester and services from London are being turned around at Chelmsford.
