Update: Rail lines reopen following morning of delays

RAIL lines have now been reopened, following a morning of disruption due to a person being hit by a train.

A person was hit by a train this morning between Broxbourne and Harlow Town, causing all lines to be blocked.

Several trains running through the area were cancelled and many others delayed by the incident.

Signalling problems at Chelmsford also added to the disruption.

Earlier problems were caused this morning by a broken down train between Harold Wood and Shenfield, which also caused delays and train cancellations.

All lines are now reopened, although their are still some delays caused by the earlier disruption.
