Rail passengers travelling to and from Norwich can expect delays this evening due to problems with overhead wires.

Train operator Greater Anglia said services between Ingatestone and Norwich are being forced to terminate at Ipswich,

A spokesman said it was due to damage to overhead electrical wires between Stowmarket and Diss.

Engineers from Network Rail were expected to complete the repair work by 8pm.

In the meantime, a replacement bus service is running between Ipswich and Diss, and a shuttle train is running from Diss to Norwich.
