Commuters travelling to and from Lowestoft this afternoon have been hit by disruption after a signal failure.
A fault with the signalling system between Oulton Broad North and Lowestoft caused delays, which is expected to last until 5pm and continues to affect routes between Lowestoft and Norwich or Ipswich.
The problem has now been resolved, after affecting services shortly before 2pm.
A spokesperson for National Rail said: 'Journeys to and from Lowestoft are beginning to recover. However, trains may continue to be cancelled or delayed by up to ten minutes.
'Advance purchase ticket holders will be allowed to travel on earlier or later trains if their booked service is cancelled.
