Three train services from London to Norwich have been cancelled this afternoon after a deer was struck by a train on the line.

Greater Anglia says the 3pm London Liverpool Street to Norwich service, due at 4.50pm, was cancelled, along with the 4pm service, due into Norwich at 5.53pm, and the 8pm service.

The 5.30pm train from Norwich to London Liverpool Street has also been cancelled for the same reason.

Greater Anglia has apologised and insists tickets will be valid on services before or after those cancelled.

  • I drive alot of miles after dark in my job around the County of Norfolk. Muntjac Deer are becoming a dangerous concern. So much so, that as a keen motorcyclist, I now will not ride after dusk.
