Greater Anglia has confirmed that all lines are now open but that some of its services will continue to experience delays.

A lorry had struck overhead wires at a level crossing between Norwich and Brundall yesterday afternoon which caused delays and cancellations to some services.

The lines impacted by the incident was the Norwich to Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Stansted Airport and Sheringham services and were all hit by alterations.

The Network Rail response team have been working on repairing the wires overnight and it has now been completed. 


Greater Anglia confirmed it had tried to source replacement buses for all impacted services, however, as a result of the fuel shortages, it had proven difficult.
