Train operator Greater Anglia has hailed improving punctuality for its services in March.

More than 93 per cent of trains in the network arrived within five minutes of their scheduled time.

On the Southend and Metro service, which calls at Ilford, Seven Kings, Goodmayes and Chadwell Heath, the figure was 95 per cent.

Rural and mainline services from East Anglia brought the overall figure down.

Greater Anglia managing director Ruud Haket said: “Both we and our customers are looking for even higher standards and even greater consistency.

“We will therefore continue to work closely with our colleagues at Network Rail, focusing on further improvements for our customers and the region we serve.”
