THERE are long queues at Basildon train station this morning, causing lengthy delays for commuters.

Returning after the Bank Holiday, commuters are waiting in queues trailing out of the station and onto the bridge.

It is thought to be caused by some of the ticket offices being shut as well as the training of a new member of staff.

There’s also believed to be queues at Laindon station.
