A tree fell on a train and damaged the driving cab during high winds.

Greater Anglia has said the incident happened at Worlingham, between Oulton Broad South and Beccles, this morning (August 10).

The driver was shaken but not hurt, Greater Anglia said.

Services on the line are now returning to normal but some delays and cancellations are expected on services between Norwich and Lowestoft.
