A number of trains collecting passengers through Suffolk and Essex have been shortened due to faults and line obstructions this morning.

Several trains travelling between Norwich and London Liverpool Street calling at Stowmarket, Ipswich, Manningtree and Colchester will be made up of one fewer carriage.

Greater Anglia, as of 6.30am, had announced 28 train formation alterations lasting until 4pm.

  • In 2009, National Express East Anglia (NXEA) agreed substantial capacity increases, including extra carriages, with Department for Transport (DfT) as part of a High Level Output Specification (HLOS). Is there not a similar legally binding obligation on Abellio Greater Anglia to maintain carriage numbers? If not, what happened to the HLOS?
