Storm: Still no Greater Anglia trains as engineers try to repair overhead wires
All Greater Anglia services across east London, Essex and the East Coast are still suspended until further notice because of this-morning’s storms.
Passengers are being advised not to attempt travelling by rail for the rest of the day.
This affects commuter services from Liverpool Street through Essex, Hertfordshire and East Anglia via Bethnal Green and Stratford and from Fenchurch Street to Essex via Limehouse, West Ham and Barking.
“We have been working with Network Rail to assess the damage,” said a rail spokesman. “There are currently no services on any Greater Anglia routes, due to the damage to overhead wires and fallen trees or branches.
“Wind speeds in some areas remain too high for us to start making repairs to the overhead wires.”

Engineers have been making their way to the damaged parts of the rail system to assess what repairs are needed. Some lines could reopen later today where they can repair the damage, but passengers are still advised not to attempt to travel on Greater Anglia for the rest of the day.
