The rail operator was awarded the £1.4bn contract by the Government on Wednesday morning and one benefit of the new franchise is a least four 90 minute services between London and Norwich each weekday.

There will be later trains between Norwich and Sheringham, Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft and most Norwich to Cambridge services will be extended to Stansted airport.

But do you want to see from the new service and are you happy that Abellio Greater Anglia have been awarded to contract?
