Rail services in Suffolk and Essex have been restored this morning following days of disruption caused by two major problems on the network.
A collision between a freight train and car closed the Ipswich to Felixstowe line on Thursday night, while a landslip on the Colchester to Clacton line stopped services between Colchester and Thorpe-le-Soken.
The driver in collision with a freight train was reported last week to have been aged in his 30s and suffered “life-changing injuries”.
British Transport Police and the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust attended the scene of the crash at a level crossing opposite the Miller and Carter restaurant in Felixstowe Road.
Following work by Network Rail engineers, both lines have reopened this morning.
