Relieved commuters were back on track this morning as normal service resumed 24 hours later than promised on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line.

Travellers endured an extra day of disruption yesterday because Network Rail's engineering work at Liverpool Street overran - prompting calls for the government to launch an inquiry into unreliable rail services in East Anglia.

Trains from Norwich were back to normal at 4pm yesterday, and services were on schedule this morning.

Separate services from Shenfield and Southend to Liverpool Street did not resume until 7.30am today, and are operating on a “reduced service” according to a spokesman for train operator One.
