There are severe delays on trains into Liverpool Street station this morning, after lines were blocked earlier due to overhead wire problems.

National Rail said the overhead wire problem at London Fields has now been fixed and all lines have reopened, but warned journeys between London Liverpool Street and Hackney Downs may still be disrupted, whilst the service recovers.

Trains may be delayed by up to 20 minutes, or cancelled, and a normal service is expected to resume at approximately 12:00.

The wiring defects at London fields have had an impact on Greater Anglia, London Overground and Stansted Express routes into the City station.

Problems on the train lines come as commuters are also facing Tube disruption on the Central line due to a derailment at White City earlier today.
