Travel: Rail services disrupted by tree branch obstruction

TRAIN services in the region have been disrupted by an obstruction on the line between Norwich and Diss.

Network Rail Engineers are working to remove a tree branch that is obstructing the overhead powerlines on the London bound track, near Flordon.

Several services in the area have been affected, with trains cancelled or delayed by up to 30 minutes.

Some trains will be started from Diss at short notice and a limited Rail Replacement bus service is now in operation between Diss and Norwich.

There is currently no estimate for a return to normal service.
