Following an earlier line-side fire between London Liverpool Street and Stratford all lines have now reopened.

Train services running to and from these stations are returning to normal but some services may still be cancelled, delayed or revised. Normal services will be provided as soon as possible.

Train services between Liverpool Street and all stations via Stratford have been disrupted due to an earlier line-side fire. Some train services have been cancelled or delayed and some services terminate/started short of their booked destination/origin due to congestion to train services through the affected area.
The fire has now been put out by the Fire Brigade and Network Rail response team and all lines are now open. However due to the disruption it caused it may take longer than usual to restore train service to normal.
Customers travelling between Liverpool Street and Southend Victoria may travel on c2c services via Fernchurch Street. Greater Anglia ticket will be accepted on that route.
Greater Anglia tickets will also be accepted on London Underground services between Liverpool Street and Stratford.
We are trying to source buses to operate between Wickford and Southminster and also between Witham and Braintree but have so far not had any luck due to the bus operators on other commitments.

Greater Anglia and Network Rail are sorry if your journey has been affected by this disruption.
