Rail services between East Anglia and London return to normal after a fault with the line at Goodmayes.

Network Rail engineers were called to the site early this morning to try to fix the problem.

The fault led to some services being cancelled or terminated early, while those which passed through the station had to do so at a reduced speed.

Five services from north Essex and East Anglia were cancelled, while others ended at Colchester.

A rail replacement bus service connected the Braintree branch line to Witham, and tickets were also accepted on Transport for London bus and rail services.
