Commuters could suffer delays and problems travelling to work in London tomorrow – due to major problems at Liverpool Street.

Greater Anglia said a serious track fault at London Liverpool Street station was preventing the operation of trains into some platforms.

The company said it is likely that there will be alterations to some Greater Anglia peak services on Monday, June 11.

A spokesman said: “Plans are due to be finalised this evening, but some services on the routes from Norwich, Ipswich, Harwich, Clacton, Braintree, Colchester, Chelmsford, Southminster and Southend to London are expected to be affected.

“Off peak services are scheduled to run as normal.

“If the alterations go ahead, ticket restrictions will be lifted and tickets from Great Eastern Main Line stations will also be valid on our West Anglia services.”

The company said customers are advised to check the Greater Anglia website www.greateranglia.co.uk later this evening for details of any service alterations.

Greater Anglia apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused to customers by this problem.

Network Rail engineers are working to fix the fault as soon as possible.
