RAIL passengers who faced delays after high winds ravaged the region at the weekend will not be compensated.

Some journey were completely cancelled while others faced hours of delay.

But Anglia Railways said that because the problems were out of their control they will not be offering blanket compensation.

A spokesperson for Anglia Railways, Peter Meads, said: "I do not think we will be offering compensation. But we will look in to any case brought to our attention by passengers.

"People in our commuter club will receive automatic compensation as part of our contract with them and we are still in discussion about our season ticket holders.

"But ordinary travellers will not receive anything. Delays were caused by problems outside our control and we were aware of them from Sunday morning and made customers aware of them.
