All train lines reopen this morning after day of disruption caused by fallen tree
Train services in Suffolk are returning to normal this morning after high winds caused widespread disruption yesterday.
Damage to overhead electric wires caused by a fallen tree between Stowmarket and Diss yesterday meant the Norwich train line was blocked and a bus service was put in place, causing 60-minute delays and cancellations.
But Abellio Greater Anglia (AGA) has this morning said all lines have now reopened.
An AGA spokesman said: “Following damage to the overhead electric wires between Stowmarket and Diss all lines are now open.
“Train services between London Liverpool Street and Norwich are returning to normal but some services may still be cancelled. Disruption is expected until 8.30am.
