Greater Anglia service disruptions caused delays at Liverpool Street Station Photo:

Rail operator, Greater Anglia, has apologised to customers after severe disruptions both last night and this morning.


#Chelmsford-current delays due to a broken down train are now approx 120 mins. KM

Services between London Liverpool Street and Norwich were disrupted after over head cable issues caused a train to stop, blocking the line near Chelmsford, last night.

An apology was put up at Liverpool Street station and on Abellio Greater Anglia's website. The company also allowed passengers unable to use their tickets yesterday to use them today and offered compensation.


#Chelmsford - If you were delayed by 30 mins or more last night you can claim compensation here: JH

However, commuters were frustrated further when there were even more disruptions this morning due to signalling problem outside Liverpool Street. Many scheduled services were unable to run.


Delays coming home last night and delays coming into Liverpool street this morning @nationalrailenq #poorservice #WorldCup2014 #sortit

The rail provider has again posted an apology on their website and are allowing passengers who do not travel to use their tickets tomorrow.

Whilst we aimed to provide alternative services wherever possible, the reduced line capacity did unfortunately result in lengthy delays for many customers...We will be investigating the cause of this incident with Network Rail to help avoid any repeat of this problem.

– Jamie Burles, Managing Director, Abellio Greater Anglia

Greater Anglia have confirmed all lines have now reopened but cancellations and delays are still ongoing.
