Firefighters have tackled a blaze that broke out on a train travelling through Ipswich. 

Emergency services were called to the incident near the level crossing in Westerfield Road at about 6.50am on Saturday. 

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said crews were called by police to tackle a blaze coming from a non-running, non-passenger train at Westerfield Train Station. 

The spokesman confirmed it was a small fire involving hydraulic couplings.

Firefighters have worked to cool the area using hose reel jets. 

Nobody was injured as a result of the fire but a road closure was put in place while emergency services attended the scene.  

Greater Anglia has confirmed that all lines are currently blocked as a result of the incident involving a freight train. 

They have advised that all services running through Westerfield station may be cancelled, delayed or revised until 10am.

A spokesman for Greater Anglia said: "We have a limited rail replacement bus service operating between Ipswich and Felixstowe.

"Local buses operated by First Bus will be accepting Greater Anglia tickets until further notice. We are working hard to reinstate our full timetable as soon as possible."
