Train services are expected to run as normal tomorrow after a day of snow disruption.

There has been a limited service today on Greater Anglia services in and out of Norwich and all rural routes to Sheringham, Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth have been cancelled because of the so-called Beast from the East.

Meliha Duymaz, Network Rail Anglia route managing director, said: “The forecasts all predicted heavy snow in our region, but for us, it has not been as bad as anticipated, with the latest radar imagery showing the worst of the snow has fallen around 20 miles further south east.

“We are now working with our train operating partners to restore as many services as we can and expect to be able to run a full service tomorrow.

“I’d like to apologise to passengers who have had difficult journeys this morning and thank them for their patience.”
