The Bittern Line has reopened following a bridge bash at North Walsham this morning.

A Network Rail spokesman said: 'I can confirm that the bridge at North Walsham Station was struck this morning just before 10am. Our engineers inspected the bridge and the line reopened at 11.05am.'

Trains between Norwich and Sheringham were running up to 20 minutes late, or being cancelled, following the incident which was reported at about 9.50am.
