A Greater Anglia spokesman apologised to customers affected.

The spokesman said: "Customers were able to complete their journeys on the following two trains stopping at the station, including the East Midlands Railway service and the next Greater Anglia Cambridge-Norwich service.

"We also arranged taxis for customers with onward connections to Great Yarmouth, so that they didn't have to wait an hour for the next service.

"We looked into organising a bus to pick up passengers, but it was unable to get there before the following trains."
