In figures released today by Network Rail 91.5% of National Express East Anglia services arrived at their final destination on time in the period 7th March to 31st March 2010. This is down from 92% for the same period last year. The national average was 93.5% (92.7% last year)
The definition of 'on time' is within 5 minutes for inner and outer suburban services and within 10 minutes for Inter City services.
It is being reported that a Frinton man was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm 'with intent to cause fear of violence' in Station Road at 6:15pm yesterday. Armed police were called to search the area after a man was spotted with a shotgun. The police helicopter was also involved.

Network Rail has been granted a court injunction against the proposed strike action by the RMT union.
Whilst the decision to call off the strike is obviously welcomed, once again thousands of passengers have been inconvenienced into making alternate arrangements by a RMT threat of strike action.
Details of National Express East Anglia services that may run in the event of a strike next week can be found by clicking here.
As previously mentioned there are currently no plans to run services between Harwich and Manningtree.
