Greater Anglia train services between Ipswich and Stowmarket are back to normal following delays and revisions this afternoon because of overhead wire problems.

All lines were blocked, and rail services stopped in both directions.

Network Rail engineers were sent to the scene to fix the problem.

Both Greater Anglia and Network Rail have apologised for the disruption.
