DAMAGE to a railway crossing in Suffolk has been fixed although police are warning motorists there may still be delays in the area.

The damage to the level crossing at Worlingham led to restricted access for cars passing across it with vehicles being let through in single file.

Officers who were on the scene directing motorists have now been withdrawn, a spokeswoman for Suffolk police said.

“Drivers are urged to use caution or use alternative routes if possible,” the spokeswoman said.

A spokesman for rail operator 'one' said the problem had been caused “minor delays”. He said only one train had been delayed by a few minutes.

He said: “It caused some very minor delays to the Lowestoft to Ipswich service. The train which leaves Lowestoft at 8.58am was delayed by a few minutes.
