here it is:
Train services running through Chelmsford are being cancelled at short notice and delayed by up to 30 minutes due to a points failure.
shares

Six main line trains between Norwich and London Liverpool Street have been cancelled as a set of points at Chelmsford are “out of use”.

Greater Anglia have said disruption is expected to continue until at least 11.30am.

A spokesman for the rail service said: “We would like to apologise for the delays and make passengers aware of our delay repay policy.”
Not much of a problem compared with the WCML today! (but I suppose it might seem like it if it was your train that was cacelled...)

I thought World's End was in Birmingham not East Anglia

It's in Edinburgh, on the Royal Mile.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD'S END

If proof were needed of a pub steeped in history, look no further than The World's End on the Royal Mile. The pub is billed as one of the 'old style', pulling in tourists who walk the cobbled street to quench their thirst with a perfectly poured Belhaven beer.

You're welcome :)

Yep, thats about the quality of Archant papers rail stories. The East Anglia Daily Times (Ipswich rag) and Eastern Daily Press (Norwich rag) both run identical stories, they copy journey check posts and add a generic twitter response as a "spokesman statement". :lol:
