Delays to London-bound trains from King’s Lynn and Downham Market after crash at level crossing in Littleport
Train passengers heading to London from King's Lynn will experience long delays this afternoon after a train collided with a car on a level crossing.
The incident happened at around 8am at the level crossing in Victoria Street, in Littleport, Cambridgeshire, and involved a car with two people inside.
A man was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge and the other person suffered minor injuries.
The crossing was closed for a number of hours and train services were suspended with replacement buses taking passengers between Downham Market and Ely.
But a spokesman for First Capital Connect, which operates the service from Lynn, has said all lines have now re-opened.
