Updated: Service back to normal after severe delays and cancellations on Norwich to London train line

Trains on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line are back to normal after major disruption this morning due to over-running engineering work.

Earlier today Greater Anglia services between Ipswich and Norwich, Cambridge and Peterborough were subject to “severe delays, alterations and cancellation”.

The operator said trains were now running as planned although its website has announced two alterations for later today.

The 5.02pm service from London Liverpool Street to Norwich will now end at Ipswich and will not call at Stowmarket, Diss or Norwich.

The 7.30pm train from Norwich to London will now begin at Ipswich, missing out the first two stops at Norwich and Diss.

Both changes are due to a staffing problem.

This morning a number of trains had to be cancelled while many others suffered delays.

The problems were due to over-running engineering work between Stowmarket and Diss.
