Commuters faced travel disruption on railways and roads throughout Cambridgeshire this morning (Friday, March 11).

On the railways, there was no Greater Anglia service between Cambridge North and Newmarket due to a points failure at Dullingham.

The issue has now been fixed.

Announcing the incident, a Greater Anglia spokesperson said: "Points allow trains to move from one track to another, as if you were changing lanes in a car.

"The location of these points is where our line from Bury St Edmunds joins our line to Cambridge, and we are unable to run any trains until this has been fixed."

A replacement bus ran between Cambridge North and Newmarket.

On the roads, traffic hotspots include the A428 at St Neots, where Openreach is carrying out emergency works.

Traffic towards Cambridge (eastbound) previously queued between Eaton Socon and the roadworks zone, according to Google Maps.
