Greater Anglia is operating ‘essential travel only’ as passengers are asked to determine if their journey is necessary

Two Greater Anglia train lines will not operate today (February 18) and others will offer a reduced service during the hits of Storm Eunice.

The Ipswich to Lowestoft and Marks Tey to Sudbury lines are closed due to the risk of falling trees.

Speed ​​restrictions are being imposed on trains today resulting in longer journey times and further disruption may be caused by the storm leading to cancellations or delays on short notice.

As a result, these lines will operate hourly, rather than more frequently.
