Great Northern, the main operator of services to and from the borough, says its trains are currently running from Lynn to Cambridge only.

In a statement on its website, the company said it will not be running a direct service from Cambridge to London Kings Cross for the rest of the day.

Passengers intending to travel to the capital are being advised to use Greater Anglia services from Cambridge to Liverpool Street instead.

The statement added: "If you travel on Great Northern or Thameslink services your journey may be extended by up to 2 hours."

There was further disruption earlier because of speed restrictions between Ely and Cambridge following reports of overhead wire problems in the Waterbeach area.

Replacement buses will also run between Ely and Lynn from 11pm tonight, tomorrow and Thursday because of planned engineering works.
