Rail and bus travellers can expect delays after Norwich train station was evacuated.

The station was fully evacuated at around 1.40pm and one fire crew was despatched after an alarm sounded.

The alarm was caused by a system fault and the station has now been reopened, however, travellers can expect delays.

Greater Anglia expects disruption to affect services until 3pm, warning that trains may be cancelled, or delayed by up to twenty minutes.

First buses routes 25, 26 and 26a may also face disruption as a result of the evacuation, but services that stop on Thorpe Road should not be affected.
