COMMUTERS experienced delays of up to 45 minutes yesterday after overhead power problems caused disruption on the Norwich-London rail line.
Train services heading to the capital were held up from 6.50am after ice on an overhead wire at Bentley, near Manningtree, triggered an automated safety system alert.
A spokesman for Network Rail said engineers carried out an inspection and found no fault. Trains began running again at about 8am.
A spokesman for National Express East Anglia said some passengers were delayed for up to 45 minutes, but the timetable had returned to normal by 10am.
