Emergency services were called at Goodmayes station shortly after 5.30pm due to “a person on the track”, Transport for London (TFL) tweeted.

The British Transport Police is not treating the incident as suspicious.

Disruption is expected to last until 8pm and trains are delayed on both Greater Anglia and TFL services.
