Liverpool Street: Trains cancelled after cables damaged
Trains were cancelled and commuters were warned to expect disruption after power lines near one of London's busiest train stations were damaged.
The overhead electric wires between Liverpool Street station and Bethnal Green, east London, were damaged on Wednesday night.
Work to clear stranded trains has begun after repairs were carried out overnight, Network Rail said.
Delays and cancellations lasted until about 09:00 GMT.
Some Greater Anglia and Stansted Express services were cancelled, while the London Overground had minor delays between Liverpool Street and Chingford, Enfield Town and Cheshunt.
TfL Rail services continued to run as normal.
Some commuters took to social media to criticise the delays, with one calling the Greater Anglia service a "debacle".
Network Rail said engineers had completed repairs to the wires at about 04:30 and added that all lines had now reopened.
Passengers were advised to check timetables before they travelled and find different routes where possible.
