Train services in and out of Lowestoft have resumed after a signalling fault caused services to be cancelled.

Network Rail engineers were called to the station following the fault, which caused services from Ipswich to be terminated at Oulton Broad and services from Norwich were cancelled.

All lines in and out of the town were blocked this morning.

A spokesperson for Greater Anglia said: “Following a fault with the signalling system earlier today at Lowestoft all lines have now reopened.

Train services running to and from this station are returning to normal but some services may still be cancelled, delayed or revised.

“Some trains will still be subject to delays and alterations and cancellations, whilst the service recovers.”

A rail replacement bus was brought in to shuttle passengers between Oulton Broad South and Lowestoft this morning.
