Rail passengers face severe disruption
RAIL services between Ipswich and London are facing severe disruption today (Tuesday) after problems with overhead wires.
Passengers are being warned to expect delays until around 3pm after the problems were detected early this morning.
A spokesman for train operator National Express East Anglia (NXEA) said intercity services to and from the capital were running but only one of the four tracks was being used causing the delays and cancellations to some services.
Trains running between London Liverpool Street and Shenfield have been reduced to three trains per hour in each direction.
Services from Peterborough and Lowestoft to the capital are terminating in Ipswich.
