There is major disruption to train services to and from West Norfolk this morning – for the second time in little more than a week.

Overhead wire damage has halted all trains around Cambridge's main station and the problem is not expected to be fully resolved until at least lunchtime.

Great Northern, the main operator of services on the borough's rail link, says it is currently running an hourly shuttle service between Lynn and Cambridge North.

Train services to and from Lynn are heavily disrupted this morning.

Passengers intending to travel towards London are being advised to delay their journeys until this afternoon.

The company says journeys to and from the capital are currently likely to be delayed by up to two hours.

A post on its Twitter feed a short time ago said: "Engineers have completed repairs on the overhead wires and are now carrying out checks and testing before the lines are reopened.

"This is expected to take several hours."

The incident follows similar problems between Letchworth and Royston last Tuesday.
