Severe winds cause delays on Norwich to Liverpool Street train
Wind was so severe this evening that a large branch was blown onto the railway track at Colchester, causing several delays.
Commuters travelling on the Norwich to Liverpool Street service at 6.22pm had their journey delayed by 15 minutes while the track was cleared.
This caused a back up with later trains suffering the same amount of delay.
Some trains even missed the Chelmsford and Stratford stops out entirely and went straight to Liverpool Street.
The services were running as normal two hours later.
