ANGLIA Railways has apologised to its passengers after several of its early morning commuter trains were cancelled.

Overnight engineering work ran into the morning yesterday , meaning that three trains – the 5.18am Norwich to London, the 7.07am Ipswich to Norwich and the 8am Norwich to London, between Norwich and Ipswich – had to be cancelled.

Peter Meades, a spokesman for Anglia Railways, said yesterday: "We had some problems this morning purely and simply because Network Rail were doing overnight engineering work which over ran into this morning.

"It did cause some disruption – for example the 7.07am Ipswich to Norwich train had to be cancelled simply because the driver was the wrong side of the engineering block with another train.

"Although there were delays and disruption, it was not extensive. We apologise to our customers who were affected this morning.

"It is always disappointing when overnight projects over run."
