Signalling problems are causing disruption to train services to and from West Norfolk this morning.

Both the 7.34 arrival in Lynn from London Kings Cross and a service from Cambridge which is due into Lynn at 8.03 are delayed.

The London train is more than half an hour behind schedule, while the 7.42 departure from Lynn to London is also delayed.

Officials say the issues are being caused by several problems with signalling equipment between Royston and Cambridge.

An update posted via National Rail Enquiries said: "Services travelling between these two stations need to be 'talked past' these faulty signals.

"This process requires the train to come to a stop and await verbal confirmation from the signaller that the line ahead is clear, before being able to proceed.

"This can take up to 10 minutes per train, and congestion can quickly build.

"Network Rail technicians are working to repair these faults as soon as possible."
