Travel: Overhead wire problems cause delays on main line service

PASSENGERS travelling between Norwich and London are facing delays this morning due to overhead wire problems.

Rail provider Greater Anglia said the issue meant trains between traveling between Diss and Norwich were running at a reduced speed.

They warned passengers that some services mat be cancelled, delays or revised.

Engineers are working to assess the problem and one of the lines Norwich-bound was closed this morning.

Services are running at an hourly frequency with extended journey times.

Meanwhile, a broken down lorry is causing some disruption on the A14 at Westley.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said one lane was blocked, causing some delays for motorists.
