Train services have returned to normal following earlier disruption caused by overrunning engineering works.

Network Rail’s planned work on the line between Bury St Edmunds and Kennett did not finish on time, which caused disruption to services until around 7.15am.

Passengers travelling to and from Ipswich, Needham Market, Stowmarket, Elmswell, Thurston, Bury St Edmunds, Kennett, Newmarket, Dullingham and Cambridge faced delays, cancellations and revisions to services.

Greater Anglia said the line had reopened shortly after 6am, after a broken equipment caused works to overrun.

The 5.10am Ipswich to Cambridge service; 5.31am and 6.21am Bury St Edmunds service and the 6.42am Cambridge to Ipswich service were cancelled.
