Normal service is being resumed on the Norwich to London train line after problems with overhead power lines caused delays throughout the day.
A spokesman for train operator Greater Anglia said the problem with overhead power lines occurred at Needham Market at about 10.45am today and Network Rail engineers spent much of the day work to fix the problem.
The operator was running a reduced train service on the line with a bus replacement service between Stowmarket and Ipswich, while the work took place, and services were taking between 30 and 60 minutes longer than usual.
The spokesman said the lines through Stowmarket were reopened at 6.05pm and the operator was working to recover the full service as quickly as possible, although some delays and service alterations may continue through the early evening.
'We apologise to customers for the delay to services and inconvenience caused,' he said.
