A TRAIN has derailed during engineering works, prompting a warning to commuters that services "may be cancelled, delayed or revised" this morning (March 6).

Greater Anglia says a Network Rail engineering works train came off the tracks at Stratford last night, meaning a reduced service will run at the station today.

The train has been removed from the railway, allowing all lines to re-open.

Network Rail will make full repairs to the railway infrastructure tonight. In the meantime, fewer trains will be able to use platform 10 at Stratford and those that do will be running at a reduced speed.

A Greater Anglia spokesman said: "Trains remain disrupted but we are now working at getting trains running to the timetable as soon as possible. Please check your journey before you travel using the online Journey Planner, which is updated with the latest information.

"Greater Anglia and Network Rail are sorry if your journey has been affected by this disruption."
