A spokesman said the incident took place in the toilet of the train which was stationary on Platform 1.

It led to Greater Anglia having to cancel the 4.17pm service and also had a knock on effect as the 6.07pm from the Suffolk resort was started at Beccles.

A spokesperson for the rail company said the correct schedule would then come into place.
