Commuters heading into London are facing delays this morning.

Abellio Greater Anglia have apologised after the Norwich to London Liverpool Street services have been disrupted due to wheel damage on trains at Stratford.

Travellers are facing delays of up to 40 minutes for journeys via Stratford.

A spokesperson, said: 'The problems are due to some of our diesel trains suffering wheel damage, as a result of poor rail conditions. This situation leads to excessive wear on the wheels which must be repaired before the trains can re-enter service.

'On average we are currently seeing two trains arrive back at the end of each day with wheel damage, more than double the rate we have experienced in previous autumn periods.'

A bus service is being organised in some areas to replace cancelled trains.

Engineers are currently working to repair the damage and services are expected to return to normal sometime this week.
