Norwich to London trains back to normal

Trains services between Norwich and the capital have returned to normal today after passengers endured a frustrating day of disruption yesterday.

Cable problems at Bethnal Green in London yesterday (Tuesday) had affected National Express East Anglia (NXEA) services to and from Liverpool Street station from about 5am yesterday.

The altered timetables meant many morning commuters had arrived late for work in the capital and by the evening rush hour an hourly service was running back to Norfolk as workers battled to repair the damage.

A Network Rail spokesperson said: 'Repairs to the overhead lines at Bethnal Green were completed after engineers worked overnight and all lines to and from Liverpool Street are back to normal this morning.

'We apologise for the disruption to passengers' journeys yesterday. We have begun an investigation into the cause of the incident and this is still ongoing.'
