Power line damage delays trains between London and East

Train services in and out of Liverpool Street station in London to destinations across East Anglia have been disrupted by damaged power lines.

Network Rail engineers are working to repair the damage in Bethnal Green.

The damage caused delays of up to an hour and some trains were cancelled.

On Tuesday afternoon Network Rail said five out of six lines that serve Liverpool Street were now open although there are still some delays. A full service is expected on Wednesday.

Trains to Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk as well as the Stansted Express have been affected.

A Network Rail spokesperson said: "The line which has sustained significant damage will be repaired overnight and we aim to run a full service tomorrow morning.

"We have begun an investigation into the cause of the incident.

"We once again apologise for the disruption to passengers' journeys."

Passengers are advised to look for the latest travel information on the National Rail website.
