A BROKEN down train near at Manningtree has cancelled trains from London through to Ipswich and Norwich.

A recent update from Greater Anglia has told rail users a network engineering train has suffered a fault which rail staff have been unable to fix, resulting in services being cancelled or delayed at short notice.

Trains from London to Ipswich are now terminating at Colchester, with replacement buses in place to complete the rest of the journey.

A tweet from Greater Anglia read: β€œDue to a broken down train at Manningtree, some lines are blocked.

β€œA Network Rail engineering train has come to a stand in the Manningtree area due to a fault which cannot be rectified.



β€œAs a result, train services between Liverpool Street and Ipswich and Norwich will be delayed, altered, or cancelled at short notice.”

β€œThe train requires assistance and a rescue train has been sourced and on route to Manningtree – a fitter is also en-route.

β€œAt present, the Liverpool Street to Ipswich services will terminate and start from Colchester.

β€œGreater Anglia and Network Rail are sorry if your journey has been affected by this disruption.”
