TRAINS between Southend Victoria and London Liverpool Street are running again after a person was hit by a train earlier.

Disruption on the line, which saw eight trains cancelled after a person was hit by a train between Hockley and Rayleigh at lunchtime, is expected to last until 3.30pm today, Thursday, February 28.

A replacement bus service ferried passengers between Southend Victoria and Wickford as train operator Greater Anglia dealt with the incident.
