Logstash shutdown stalled


I've attempted to restart logstash and now find the following error:

[2018-02-22T15:54:41,710][INFO ][logstash.pipeline        ] Pipeline terminated {"pipeline.id"=>".monitoring-logstash"}
[2018-02-22T15:54:46,200][INFO ][logstash.pipeline        ] Pipeline terminated {"pipeline.id"=>"main"}
[2018-02-22T15:54:46,750][WARN ][logstash.shutdownwatcher ] {"inflight_count"=>0, "stalling_thread_info"=>{}}
[2018-02-22T15:54:46,752][ERROR][logstash.shutdownwatcher ] The shutdown process appears to be stalled due to busy or blocked plugins. Check the logs for more information.

I have been able to stop and restart the service using systemd (state changes from stopped to active) but nothing is written into the logs and no data is being sent to elasticsearch. I've followed the docs here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/6.2/shutdown.html but am still unable to get logstash up and running again.

I've previously been able to stop and start the service absolutely fine. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to rectify this?
