Rail services between Ipswich and Felixstowe have been cancelled because too many trains have broken down at the same time.

The train line was closed shortly before 3pm and all remaining planned services have been replaced by buses.

A statement on the Greater Anglia website said: “Due to more trains than usual needing repairs at the same time, the train service between Ipswich to Felixstowe and Felixstowe to Ipswich will be suspended and covered by a bus replacement service until the end of the day.”
