Rail services between Norwich and London which were disrupted after a person was hit by a train are returning to normal

Earlier this morning Greater Anglia was asking people to "postpone their journey" between Norwich, Ipswich, Clacton On Sea, Colchester and Liverpool Street due to a person being hit by a train between Colchester and Marks Tey.

Trains using the mainline between Norwich and London were cancelled or delayed and there was major disruption across the Greater Anglia network.

At 7.55am the rail provider tweeted that services were "beginning to run" and lines affected by the incident had reopened.
