Rail passengers travelling between Norwich and London face disruption this morning.

An earlier points failure at Ilford has affected the movement of trains from Greater Anglia's carriage servicing depot and on two out of the four lines through Ilford.

All lines reopened just before 6.40am but the operator has warned that all train services running through this station may be cancelled, delayed or revised.

Disruption was expected until about 7.30am.

London Underground and Bus services are taking passengers via any reasonable route until further notice and arrangements have been made for Abellio Greater Anglia rail tickets to be accepted for these journeys.
