Al Ashford, 33, from Ipswich, said: “I'm in a show in London and am having to travel back and forth every day. I'm going to have to phone up to say I can't come today.

“I go to London a lot to see my children too, and I don't know why there are so many problems on the trains. I was supposed to be in London for 10.30am so there is no way I'll make that.”

Len Yates, 49, of Turn Lane, Woodbridge, said: “I got on the train at Woodbridge and there was nothing to say there were delays at Ipswich. I got here and just found out that I probably won't be able to get to London today.

“It is bad enough when there are problems with the trains but when they don't even warn you before, it's terrible. I wrote a complaint about the trains four weeks ago and I still haven't got a reply.”

Tony Butler, 34, from Saxmundham, said: “I did not know anything about this until I got here this morning. It would have been nice if they told us. I was going to go to London but now it looks like I'll go home. The next train to Saxmundham is 50 minutes though so I'll have to wait for that now.”
