A limited service with “major disruption” is running on mainline train lines through Havering after heavy winds disrupted transport into the early hours.
Regarding the Liverpool Street to Shenfield line, Greater Anglia tweeted at about 8am: “A limited service is now running but please don’t travel unless your journey is essential as there is major disruption.”
c2c, which runs services through Rainham and Upminster, tweeted that a limited service was running into London, but at 8.17am added a bus service is replacing trains between Upminster in Pitsea due to flooding.
Floods of up to two foot deep have been reported around Upminster and Rainham.
Wennington firefighters were called out to rescue four people trapped in their cars, though in every case the stricken drivers had managed to free themselves by the time the brigade arrived.
