A person has been hit by a northbound train north of Bishop's Stortford, resulting in the railway line between London and Cambridge being temporarily blocked.
The incident happened on the stretch of the line in the Sworder's Field and Grange Paddocks area at around 8pm on Friday evening (Mar 22).
The train involved was the 7.09pm from Liverpool Street to Cambridge, which stops at Stortford and leaves at 7.49pm.
Services are returning to normal, but some trains may still be cancelled, delayed by up to 60 minutes or revised.
Trains from Liverpool Street to Cambridge, Stansted Airport and Bishop's Stortford and vice versa have been disrupted. The line has now reopened, but services may still be disrupted as a result of the severe delays caused.
Some trains from Liverpool Street may terminate at Stortford and start from Stortford back to Liverpool Street. Cambridge services may terminate at, and start from, Audley End.
Rail replacement buses will continue to shuttle between Bishop's Stortford and Audley End and between the two stations and Stansted Airport.
Greater Anglia tickets are being accepted on London Underground services and Great Northern services for people wishing to travel to Cambridge.
Disruption is expected until the end of the night.
