Trains are back to running a normal service after a signal failure caused severe delays.

Torrential downpours, thunder and lightening have been hitting Barking and Dagenham since the early afternoon, with similar conditions forecast to continue intermittently until 11pm this evening.

The 18.20 c2c train from Barking to Shoeburyness has been cancelled, with train crews unable to get to work because of the adverse weather conditions. Trains delayed between Barking and West Ham due to signal failure are now running normally.

There are currently no major delays on the roads, but slower traffic is expected. The district line is currently running a normal service.
