A train fault at Stowmarket railway station, which caused delays and cancellations on the main line from London to Norwich, has now been dealt with according to Greater Anglia.

The fault, which happened shortly after 10.40am, is causing services running through Stowmarket to be cancelled, delayed or revised.

The line towards Diss and Elmswell had been blocked by a broken down train which had no power.

It was travelling from Liverpool Street station to Norwich when it broke down at the platform in Stowmarket. It had departed from London at 9am.

Disruption was expected on the line until 4pm and with a number of services cancelled or revised.

In a recent update Greater Anglia said: “Following a broken down train earlier today at Stowmarket some lines have now reopened.

“Train services running through this station are returning to normal but some services may still be cancelled, delayed or revised.”

Greater Anglia are advising that travellers consult their website or their Twitter page for further updates and train alterations can be found here.
