The Victoria Road level crossing is once again broken, infuriating drivers in Lowestoft.

The crossing, near Oulton Broad South station, was also broken yesterday, causing gridlock in the town with some drivers forced to wait over an hour for the gates to be fixed.

Network Rail said the crossing broke at around 3.45pm, and confirmed an engineer was on their way to remedy the problem as quickly as possible.
