Greater Anglia said the fault on the train, between Norwich and Diss at just before 1pm, had blocked all lines.

Engineers went to fix the train and have managed to get it moving again.

However, delay and disruption to services is likely to continue until 3.30pm.

But the 1pm service from Norwich to London Liverpool Street and the 3.30pm train from London to Norwich were cancelled, along with the 12.33pm service from Norwich to Stansted Airport and the 2.48pm service from Stansted Airport to Norwich.
