All lines are now open after a lorry collided with a bridge blocking all services between Norwich and London Liverpool Street.

Delays are expected to continue until 10am this morning after a lorry collided with Coddenham Road bridge in Needham Market just after 6.30am this morning.

Network Rail have now assessed the bridge in question and it has been confirmed that it is now safe to continue the rail services.
