Rail services between Stowmarket and Diss are resuming after a lorry struck a bridge.

All lines had been blocked with services subject to disruption on all routes, Greater Anglia had said.

The incident affected all services between Norwich and Stowmarket.

A white Mercedes lorry stuck the bridge in Pound Lane at around 10.30am.

Network Rail engineers were sent to assess the damage. The line re-opened at about 11.50am.

A police spokesman said there was no reported injuries but officers had to close the road.

In December a similar incident occurred when a Night Freight lorry hit the bridge.

There has also been a level crossing failure which is affecting trains between London Liverpool Street and Norwich.
