More woe on the railway as trains between Cambridge and King's Lynn disrupted




After trains were cancelled due to overhead wires being damaged in the heat on Thursday, passengers travelling to and from King's Lynn were faced with further disruption this morning.

A spokesman for Great Northern said overhead wire damage between Lynn and Ely was reported around 9.15am this morning (Tuesday, July 30).

It is anticipated the disruption will continue until 1pm today.

Shuttle buses have been put on between Lynn and Downham as trains are currently not able to run between Ely and Lynn in either direction.

Network Rail engineers, British Transport Police and other operatives are on site.

It comes after many services were cancelled last week with Network Rail warning the system could not cope with the searing heat.

Great Northern has advised customers to keep any train tickets purchased as they may be entitled to compensation.
