Rail passengers are today facing disruption after a number of trains have been cancelled between Norwich and London, Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth.

Train operator Greater Anglia is currently reporting that the following trains are cancelled due to more trains than usual needing repairs at the same time:

1.30pm Norwich to London Liverpool Street

4pm London Liverpool Street to Norwich

4.38pm Norwich to Great Yarmouth

5.17pm Great Yarmouth to Norwich

6.04pm Norwich to Great Yarmouth

6.47pm Great Yarmouth to Norwich

Other services cancelled earlier today for the same reason included the 7.47am Lowestoft to Norwich train, the 8.36am Norwich to Great Yarmouth train and the 9.17am Great Yarmouth to Norwich train.

The 8.30am Norwich to London Liverpool Street service and the 11am London Liverpool Street to Norwich service were also both cancelled due to damage to overhead electric wires.

Plastic sheeting caught on overhead electric wires near Chelmsford meant that the 3.30pm service from London Liverpool Street arrived in Norwich at 5.40pm, not 5.24pm.
