The Beast from the East continues to cause severe rail disruption around the region as a number of lines remain closed.

All trains scheduled to arrive and depart Lowestoft and Oulton Broad North have been cancelled because of the snow today (March 3).

Likewise all trains scheduled to arrive and depart from Great Yarmouth have also been cancelled.

A reduced service is running across the Greater Anglia network, with cancellations and delays on the majority of lines.

The Norwich to Great Yarmouth, Norwich to Lowestoft and Ipswich to Lowestoft lines will remain closed all weekend.

These include the Norwich to London lines, and the Norwich to Cambridge, Ipswich to Felixstowe, Cambridge, and Peterborough.

This is due to access issues with signal boxes and an inability to deal with problems on the line because of the poor road conditions in rural areas.

Greater Anglia are advising customers to continue to check their website before travelling to the station, or ring their 24 hours a day customer service line on 0345 600 7245.
