RAIL services are returning to normal after commuters faced delays this morning following a broken down train.

Services between London Liverpool Street and Colchester were delayed for up to 12 minutes at short notice, Greater Anglia said.

Services from London Liverpool Street to Norwich were delayed for up for 15 minutes.

A broken down freight train at Marks Tey was earlier blocking the London-bound line, but Greater Anglia said services were returning to a normal service.

Trains from Colchester to London have been able to use the other line to Marks Tey, and then crossover to the normal London-bound track.

A rescue engine has now moved the defective train out of the way.

Meanwhile, roads in Suffolk appear relatively clear this morning.
