UPDATE: West Norfolk train services disrupted for the rest of the day by broken rail
Train passengers heading to and from West Norfolk are being warned to expect delays for the rest of the day following the discovery of a broken rail .
A shuttle service is operating from Lynn to Downham only, with buses replacing trains between Downham and Ely after the problem was found in the Littleport area earlier this afternoon.
Operator Great Northern says no trains will run between Downham and Ely for the rest of today, with a continuous bus service operating instead.
The company said the problem is on part of the single track section of the line, meaning trains cannot run in either direction.
Network Rail engineers are said to be heading to the scene to assess the damage.
