Train passengers are being warned of major disruption after overhead electric wires were damaged near one of London’s busiest stations.
Network Rail said services travelling to and from Liverpool Street could be cancelled or revised until 8am on Thursday.
Wires between Liverpool Street and Bethnal Green, east London, were damaged, with the outage impacting Greater Anglia, London Overground, Stansted Express and Transport for London Rail services.
Passengers are being advised to use their tickets on London Underground, London Overground, Greater Anglia, London Buses and c2c to complete their journeys.
Network Rail said engineers had completed repairs to the wires at around 4.30am and train operators were working to clear stranded trains from the lines.
A Network Rail spokeswoman said: “Our teams worked throughout the night to get passengers moving again. All lines have now reopened, but we would advise passengers to check before they travel as there are some knock-on delays.”
