A collision at a level crossing has caused rail delays between Norwich and Sheringham.

Network Rail reported the collision at a crossing between Salhouse and Hoveton & Wroxham just after 7.20pm on Saturday, July 17.

The collision saw trains cancelled on the line until just after 9.30pm, although delays were expected to continue for some time after.

A Greater Anglia spokesman said a limited rail replacement bus service was put into action as work to restore the line went on.
