Greater Anglia has warned passengers that a small landslip has blocked part of a train line in Suffolk.
The landslide happened on the tracks between Woodbridge and Westerfield between 8:30am and 9:30am this morning and has blocked one side of the line.
This means that services from Lowestoft to Ipswich are not able to run, however Ipswich to Lowestoft is unaffected.
Network Rail engineers are currently on the scene working to clear the line.
A spokesman for Network Rail said: "Unfortunately, some debris fell onto one of the railway tracks between Woodbridge and Westerfield earlier this morning.
