Greater Anglia said that engineers from Network Rail are en route to the affected areas to help fix the problems.

Multiple faults with signals, CCTV cameras and phones that operate the crossings are thought to be behind the disruption, which Greater Anglia says is expected until the end of the day.

The company said: "Due to a problem at level crossings between Reedham and Norwich, trains have to run at a reduced speed. Train services to and from these stations may be subject to disruption on all routes.

"Disruption is expected until further notice."

If your journey is delayed by 15 minutes or more, you may be entitled to claim delay repay.
