More Greater Anglia trains are running on time, new figures reveal.

92.1 per cent of trains operated by Abellio Greater Anglia in March were less than five minutes late for commuters and less than 10 minutes late for long-distance services.

The national average was 91.4 per cent.

Managing director Jamie Burles said he was “encouraged” by the improvement and was working with Network Rail to resolve all remaining issues.
