Rail services in Suffolk and Essex are continuing to face disruption this morning following an incident on the mainline yesterday in which a person was killed after being hit by a train.

Greater Anglia said the 6.24am Norwich to London Liverpool Street service, calling at Diss, Stowmarket, Ipswich, Manningtree and Colchester, had been cancelled due to the incident.

It happened yesterday at afternoon near Ingatestone railway station in Essex.

British Transport Police and paramedics attended at around 4.35pm but the person was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The incident is currently being treated as unexplained,” a spokesman for STP said.

“Officers are carrying out enquiries to establish the nature of the incident”

Passengers on board the train reported seeing an air ambulance touch down in a field next to the railway line.

Greater Anglia was unable to run trains between Ingatestone and Shenfield causing many services to be delayed or cancelled.

Passengers were encourage to apply for compensation via its delay repay scheme.
