Thousands of train commuters in East Anglia have battled disruption because of overrunning engineering works.

Problems between Ipswich and Stowmarket led to Greater Anglia trains between Norwich and London, and Ipswich and other towns in Suffolk being cancelled throughout the morning.

Lines from Ipswich to Peterborough and Cambridge were also affected.

Many services have since resumed, but the knock-on effects of the works are causing delays into the afternoon.

Greater Anglia has apologised for the problems.

In May, overrunning works at Colchester led to similar disruption across three counties.
