Rail passengers are facing delays this evening on the Norwich to London train line.

The disruption - which is expected to last until about 8pm - is due to a vehicle hitting a bridge at Needham Market earlier this evening. Some services have been delayed by about 40 minutes.

A statement from train operator Abellio Greater Anglia said: “Train services between Norwich and London Liverpool Street, Ipswich and Cambridge, and Ipswich and Peterborough are returning to normal, but may still be delayed by up to 20 mins at short notice.

“We thank you for your patience and understanding whilst this incident is dealt with.”
