A fault on a Norfolk bridge means all lines that usually travel over it are blocked.

The swing bridge at Reedham is not working, Greater Anglia said, meaning trains cannot cross the River Yare.

The operator added services running through the station at Reedham will be cancelled until the issue is rectified.

Trains between Norwich and Lowestoft are affected.

It said: "Greater Anglia and Network Rail are sorry if your journey has been affected by this disruption.
