Commuters are being delayed on their journey home this evening after a train broke down. 

Services out of London Liverpool Street heading towards Southend Victoria have been delayed after a previous service developed a fault. 

The 18:05 service will no longer call at Prittlewell, Southend Airport, Rochford, Hockley and Rayleigh.

Greater Anglia held the 18:25 service from London Liverpool Street to Southend Victoria between Ilford and Seven Kings.

This is having a knock-on affect to later trains and several services on the route are being delayed.
