TfL Rail and other services running out of Liverpool Street could be delayed or cancelled this evening due to track defect.

Network Rail is working to fix the problem on a “critical set of points”, but some platforms at the transport hub are blocked.

To manage routes some trains will be cancelled and revised until the end of rush hour, at approximately 8pm.

This will anger commuters, as TfL Rail trains, which serve Stratford, Ilford and Romford, are already being cancelled going in and out of Liverpool Street.

Services for Shenfield will not call at Manor Park, Forest Gate or Maryland.

TfL Rail advise passengers to take the number 86 bus from Stratford.

Greater Anglia has said: “We are sorry if your travel plans are affected by this disruption.”

Passengers can use their Greater Anglia tickets on the Tube and c2c.
