PEOPLE are being advised not to travel on train services to London Liverpool Street due to long delays.

Greater Anglia trains to and from Colchester, Clacton, Braintree, Ipswich and Harwich Town are being cancelled or delayed by up to 45 minutes due to a problem at a level crossing at Ingatestone.

Customers with advance tickets will be able to travel on alternative trains if their service is cancelled.

There is no estimate of when services will return to normal.

The operator is advising people heading towards Shenfield and London Liverpool Street not to travel.

Greater Anglia has apologised for the disturbance.
