Train passengers have been asked not to travel by Greater Anglia as services continue to be disrupted following Storm Eunice.

Trains running across the whole Greater Anglia network were suspended until further notice yesterday (February 18) after multiple incidents of trees blocking the railway, due to extremely high winds in the region.

While some routes have reopened, many services remain closed.

In a statement from the rail network, a spokesman said: "As a result of Storm Eunice and the ongoing disruption caused by strong winds, our network remains closed this morning while Network Rail inspect all lines to check that it is safe for trains to run.

"Some train services may not resume until Sunday and those that do run will need to at 50mph speed restriction.

"Please do not travel as there will not be any alternative transport available."

Those with tickets for travel dated Friday, February 18 or Saturday, February 19 can rearrange their tickets for another day, free of charge.
