Brandon railway incident was a 'false alarm' - Network Rail

Brandon railway station's level crossing was closed on Sunday (August 18) as Norfolk Constabulary attended an incident.

Officers attended around 10am after reports the barrier had become stuck. Network Rail also attended the scene, which led to two of the day's trains being disrupted.

"There was resulting traffic build-up, but the barrier issue was dealt with by Network Rail by 10.35am and traffic was moving."

Network Rail told the Bury Free Press that the incident was a 'false alarm' and that the disruption was 'minimal'.

British Transport Police were called about the incident, but did not attend.
