TRAINS between Southend and London have been cancelled.

At least three Greater Anglia services have been cancelled due to members of the train crew being unavailable and a lorry hitting a bridge at Rayleigh.

The 8.12am service from Southend Victoria is not running, as well as the 9.34am service from London Liverpool Street, and the 10.50am service from Southend.

Emergency services are at the scene of the crash and disruption on the trains is expected until 11am.

There are also delays and cancellations on c2c trains due to a fault with the barriers at a level crossing.

The 7.35am service from Pitsea to London Fenchurch Street will terminate at Barking and no longer stop in London.

Other services are facing delays to and from London.
