Lots of delays on the c2c and London Underground lines this morning.

A safety inspection on the tracks at Upminster station has meant c2c trains this morning are delayed.

The inspection means that trains have to run at a reduced speed on the line towards London-bound, and services across the whole c2c network may be cancelled, delayed by up to 10 minutes or revised.

C2c tweeted about the delays earlier this morning (Wednesday, September 26).

London Underground and Greater Anglia are conveying passengers via any reasonable route until further notice.
