Train services between Norwich, Ipswich, Clacton On Sea, Colchester and Liverpool Street and between Braintree and Witham have been severely disrupted due to a person hit by a train earlier between Colchester and Marks Tey and as a result trains were unable to run between Colchester and Witham, Marks Tey and Sudbury.

Emergency services have completed their investigations and the line has now reopened. However due to trains and crew displaced it will take longer than expected to restore the train service to normal.
Train services are severely delayed and some services may be cancelled at short notice or altered.
