A train was forced to come to a shuddering halt after reports that a person could be seen on the railway line.

The new Stadler bimode train had set off from Lowestoft during the evening of Wednesday, December 18 when it stopped suddenly close to Woodbridge.

An announcement was then made to passengers on the train saying that the service would be delayed as Greater Anglia tried to establish what was happening.

A few minutes later, an announcement was made to say that the person had moved away from the railway track and the service resumed after a five to 10minute delay.
