ANIMALS on the railway line at Wickham Market are causing disruption today.

Trains are having to run at reduced speeds, a spokesman for Greater Anglia said.

Services between Ipswich and Lowestoft via Saxmundham and Beccles are likely to be delayed at short notice.

The spokesman said an estimate for the resumption of normal services will be provided as soon as the problem has been fully assessed.

Ipswich’s MP has said work must continue to provide the town with alternative routes for diverted Orwell Bridge traffic in the wake of yesterday’s closure.

Ipswich was again forced to deal with the disruption caused by an Orwell Bridge closure yesterday as Storm Doris wreaked havoc across East Anglia.

Storm Doris descended on Suffolk yesterday causing disruption, damage and travel misery for thousands.

Pianos collectively worth £50,000 are being given away to schools and community groups.

Nearly 11 hours after it was closed, motorists are now able to use the Orwell Bridge.

It’s not too late to book tickets and take in a great show this March. Suffolk’s theatres offer a wide range of performances to choose from with something for everyone including music, comedy, plays and wrestling.

Rush hour rail travellers at Ipswich, Stowmarket and Colchester stations, as well as all along the East Suffolk Line, are being frustrated by disruption caused by Storm Doris.

A man from Ipswich has been taken into police custody by officers investigating a stabbing.
