Train passengers have been facing disruption due to a points failure which blocked the line between Norwich and Great Yarmouth.

Greater Anglia said the points failure at Acle had blocked the line towards Norwich on Wednesday (November 6) morning.

The 6.52am from Norwich to Yarmouth and the 6.58am and 7.30am trains from Yarmouth to Nrowich were cancelled.

While Network Rail engineers have fixed the fault, train bosses said services would be delayed by up to 30 minutes, with disruption likely to continue until 10am.

There were also other, unconnected cancellations due to train faults.
