Train travellers have been hit by disruption, with no services running between Cromer and Sheringham due to a signal system fault.

Greater Anglia says a bus shuttle service will run between Cromer and Sheringham and vice versa all day, while the 10.45am from Norwich to Sheringham and 11.44am from Sheringham to Norwich has been completely cancelled.

They say the signalling equipment which controls the level crossings on the Norwich to Sheringham line has failed.

They say Network Rail engineers will be working on the equipment throughout the day.
