The train line between Norwich and Sheringham has reopened after hours of disruption due to Storm Doris.

Train services between Norwich and Sheringham were suspended because of trees blocking the line after they were brought down in Storm Doris.

About 40 trees are thought to have fallen in the Worstead area, blocking the rail lines and has made it unsafe to run a service between Norwich and Sheringham.

A message on the company’s website said: “A number of trees have fallen in the Worstead area, blocking the rail lines and has made it unsafe to run a train service between Norwich and Sheringham. This has resulted in cancelling all services on the branch until 14:00 whilst the Network Rail team cut and remove all trees from the running lines.”

The line eventually reopened at 6pm.
