Rail delays on the line between Norwich and Great Yarmouth have now cleared after horses got onto the track this evening.

Abellio Greater Anglia said a number of services were either cancelled or running late since 6pm, until the disruption was finally cleared at around 7.45pm.

Due to the incursion some services were forced to run a reduced speed, which had a knock-on effect to later services.

The 4.40pm Norwich to Great Yarmouth service was also delayed at Acle due to a passenger being taken ill.

Compensation is available to some of those affected if delays last over 30 minutes.
