Train services are begining to return to normal after a tree fell on overhead cables at Ardleigh causing the suspension of services between Colchester and Norwich.

The tree fell on the line at 8am causing a loss of overhead power to the trains, but has since been removed and power restored.

However, a spokesman for train operator Greater Anglia warned passengers to expect delays on services until the early afternoon.

The suspension affected festival-goers heading for the Latitude festival near Southwold with large queues forming at Diss station.

  • They usually get blamed for not telling people what is going on, not offering refreshment when people are stuck on trains for ages, and not telling people how to claim a refund (which means they claim their compensation from Network Rail and pay out next to nothing to their own passengers - bingo!).

  • I expect Greater Anglia will get the blame again for something that is out of there control
