Liverpool Street trains cancelled after line problems at Ilford

Rush hour commuters from Liverpool Street face cancellations and 20 minute delays to their journeys to Ilford and beyond due to overhead line problems.

Engineers from Network Rail are carrying out emergency repairs to the line near Ilford station.

Shenfield-bound trains are not calling at Manor Park or Ilford, and London-bound services will not stop at Seven Kings.

It is the third time in two weeks that overhead cable problems have made commuters’ rush hour journeys a misery.

A statement on the National Express East Anglia website reads this afternoon: “Train services on all routes via Ilford are being disrupted due to overhead wire problems in the Ilford area.
