Commuters are being told to expect residual delays between Bishops Stortford and Stansted Airport this morning, after a fallen tree damaged overhead electric wires.

All lines have reopened, but some services may still be cancelled or revised, with disruption expected to last until 10am.

The tree had fallen onto the wires following a storm last night.

Network Rail staff have managed to cut it back and re-energise the electric line, with services able to return to normal between Liverpool Street, Stansted Airport and Cambridge.

A rail replacement bus service will run between Bishop’s Stortford and the airport for those affected by cancelled or revised trains

Services between Liverpool Street and Hertford East, and Stratford and Bishop’s Stortford are currently unaffected.
