COMMUTERS faced more misery on the railway lines after signal problems saw a series of services delayed and cancelled.

Peak trains running between London and East Anglia were affected by the fault yesterday, thought to have caused by a power surge in the Diss area.

Four services were cancelled and a number of others delayed by up to 45 minutes as the problems took hold in last night's rush hour.

A spokesman for One said yesterday's problem was reported early in the afternoon.

Services between Liverpool Street and Norwich were all hit, with the number of trains running reduced to one an hour.

The spokesman said services were running as normal by about 6pm, although some still had delays.
