A new interim timetable introduced by the rail company that runs most services to and from West Norfolk is working well, bosses say.

Passengers on Great Northern services to and from Lynn, Watlington and Downham did face disruption on Wednesday because of signalling problems.

But the operator's parent company, Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) say they ran 200 more trains last week than after the earlier timetable change in May.

The firm also says punctuality and reliability are returning to levels achieved before the May change.

GTR chief executive Patrick Verwer said: “My priority is to ensure passengers have the punctual service they are promised, and the new interim timetable is starting to achieve that.

"While the overall picture has improved, some infrastructure problems beyond our control have impacted services.”
