There will be no trains to and from Norwich on East Midlands Train services because of a derailed train.

The derailment, which happened yesterday (Monday, August 14) between Ely North Junction and Ely West Junction, is continuing to disrupt trains on the Liverpool Lime Street / Nottingham / Norwich route.

It means all East Midlands Trains are unable to run between Peterborough and Ely which is likely to continue for a few days.

Trains from Norwich to Liverpool Lime Street will start at Peterborough and trains from Liverpool Lime Street to Norwich will terminate at Peterborough.

The operator has arranged alternative routes which means passengers can travel on GTR Great Northern services via Kings Cross to / from Ely, and Greater Anglia services from Liverpool Street to / from Norwich.

Greater Anglia are running trains between Ely and Norwich in both directions which passengers can use their ticket on.
