The Lowestoft to Ipswich service is running as normal after engineers repaired a fault with the swing bridge at Oulton Broad.

Network Rail engineers were called to the swing bridge this morning and normal services were restored shortly after 11am today.

Rail replacement buses had been operating between Lowestoft and Oulton Broad South stations while the swing bridge was out of action.
