Normal service is now resuming on the Norwich to London rail line following several hours of disruption.

Passengers faced delays on journeys to and from the capital after a person was hit by a train.

The incident involved the 9.30am Ipswich to London Liverpool Street train at Kelevdon Station and the line was shut both ways while emergency services attended.

Some trains were cancelled and other services were delayed by up to 90 minutes.

The line reopened at about 11.50am but services continued to be disrupted until mid afternoon.
