There are Monday morning problems for train commuters into London.

There are delays and cancellations on the Abellio Greater Anglia rail line between Norwich and the capital through Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.

Over-running engineering work at Seven Kings in London has blocked two of the four metro lines and they will be closed until at least 8am.

The 0622 train from Norwich to Liverpool St was cancelled because of a person being hit by a train between Ingatestone and Chelmsford on Sunday night.

Train tickets are being accepted on London Underground and some Transport for London bus services.

The rail line between Norwich and London has been plagued with problems in recent months after weekend engineering work was not cleared in time for the Monday morning rush hour.

One year on from tidal surge which battered the coastline

It's exactly twelve months since the worst tidal surge in 60 years, battered our coastline.

It was a night victims will remember for the rest of their lives, particularly those who watched helplessly as their homes slipped into the sea.

The Environment Agency has spent £8 million on repair projects, but for many coastal communities, the clearing up and re-building still goes on.
