Disruptions on the c2c service continue to cause havoc at Barking station.

Due to damage to overhead lines between Fenchurch Street and Barking, fewer trains are running for the second day in a row.

Disruption is expected to last until 10am today.

Last night, long queues formed at Fenchurch Street station for commuters trying to get home during the rushhour.

Passengers at Barking station are being advised to use alternative routes. Greater Anglia, TfL rail, the overground, underground and buses are accepting tickets.

According to Essex Live, 26 trains have already been cancelled this morning.

For delays to journeys longer than 15 minutes, customers are advised they can claim compensation.
