The Ipswich to Lowestoft rail line has been closed due to severe weather.

Cancellations and delays are also expected to other services until the end of the day.

Greater Anglia said the recent weather had a significant adverse impact on trains, tracks, signalling and other equipment.

Train services on Saturday and Sunday will be subject to delay, cancellation, alterations, and some services operating with fewer carriages than normal.

The Norwich-London intercity service will run a revised hourly service from Norwich to Ingatestone.

Customers will be able to continue their journey via a rail replacement Bus from Ingatestone to Newbury Park.

As well as the Ipswich-Lowestoft line, the Norwich-Sheringham, Norwich-Great Yarmouth and Norwich-Lowestoft lines are closed.

There will be no rail replacement buses in place to cover any of the suspended routes.

Greater Anglia said: “Network Rail are working to reopen these lines as soon as possible, which have proven difficult due to inaccessible road conditions and severe snow drifts across the tracks.”

Sixteen people were rescued from rising water after four cars and a bus got stuck in high tide on The Strood crossing at Mersea Island.

Suffolk may have enjoyed an almost frost-free winter so far, but the big freeze descended on one town this weekend and so did scores of visitors enticed by the ice.
