Two trains were delayed after a van came into contact with a bridge beneath the track at Needham Market.

The 12.47pm service from Cambridge to Ipswich and the 1.58pm service from Ipswich to Peterborough were delayed after a road vehicle collided with a railway bridge at Needham Market.

A spokesperson for Greater Anglia confirmed that Network Rail engineers attended and conducted an inspection at the scene, where the bridge was found to be structurally safe.

Nobody is thought to have been injured in the collision.

Trains are now running as normal.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
