There are severe delays on all Greater Anglia trains from and to London Liverpool Street today after vandals threw a scaffold pole over a bridge onto railway lines in the early hours of this morning (June 23). This has caused serious damage to signal equipment.

The delays are affecting trains to Chelmsford, Colchester and Southend this morning, as well as services through Stansted Airport. The Elizabeth Line has also been affected, Greater Anglia has said: “A scaffold pole was thrown over a bridge onto the railway lines near Liverpool Street in the early hours of this morning causing significant damage to some signal equipments.

“The pole has been removed and the Network Rail response team are on site accessing the damage. Because of this, we have limited access to the running lines. This in turn is causing congestion, delays and alterations to the train service this morning.

“ARL train services from Liverpool Street to Cheshunt, Chingford and Enfield Town are affected by this incident. The Elizabeth Line from Liverpool Street to Shenfield is also affected by this incident.”
