A number of rail services to and from Norwich have been impacted this morning due to problems at level crossings.

Issues at the junctions between the city and Reedham mean that trains are having to be take extra care over the crossings, which is causing delays.

Trains between Norwich and Lowestoft and Norwich and Great Yarmouth are being affected, as well as services from Lowestoft to Ipswich.

Greater Anglia said that engineers from Network Rail are en route to the affected areas to help fix the problems.

Multiple faults with signals, CCTV cameras and phones that operate the crossings are thought to be behind the disruption, which Greater Anglia says is expected until the end of the day.
