It's a bad day on the trains as King's Lynn passengers face more disruption

Two separate signalling faults caused disruption to train services between King's Lynn and Ely this morning.

No trains were able to run between Ely and King's Lynn with rail replacement buses being requested by Great Northern around 11am.

At 12.12pm, Network Rail technicians confirmed a signalling fault had been fixed and the lines were reopened.

However, replacement buses are expected to continue until services return to their normal times.

It is estimated this will be at 3.30pm according to the Great Northern website.

Great Northern posted on social media at 11.30am to say a signalling fault in the Ely area meant services were "route locked".

A previous post shortly before 11am said a fault had been identified with the level crossing barriers at Ely.

It comes after a Great Northern spokesman had said that services had returned to their normal times at 8.56am following signalling problems in the Littleport area from 6.55am this morning.

This also caused disruption to passengers between Lynn and Ely.

He thanked customers for their patience and said anyone delayed by more than 15 minutes is entitled to compensation through the Great Northern website.
