Extra train services will be provided this weekend for the East Anglian derby.

Norwich City face Ipswich Town at Portman Road at midday on Sunday with thousands of people travelling to the match.

Greater Anglia will be operating three extra services; a 10.50am service from Norwich to Ipswich and one at 2.35pm from Ipswich to Norwich. Both will call at Diss.

There will also be a 2.40pm service from Ipswich to Bury St Edmunds.

Other services will run as usual between the stations.

Due to Network Rail engineering work between Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth and Norwich on Sunday, extra bus services have been organised to help get fans to the match.

Passengers are advised to check before they travel
