Hundreds of people have signed an online petition that calls on the train firms Greater Anglia and National Rail to put on later services in the evening on the Bittern Line.

The North Norfolk Labour Party petition claims train users on the Sheringham to Norwich line are having to cut their evening short and ‘clock watch’ if they want to spend an evening in the city, and that there would be a greater economic benefit to the local nightlife if trains ran later.

They are collecting support from across the district – including those who do not live near the line but drive to the nearest train station on an evening to catch the train.

Some complaints of passengers are that they are currently spending large amounts of money to get back from Norwich by taxi if they want to stay out late at night, and that some people have been missing the last train due to the late running of events in the city.

The local Labour party isnow writing to parish councils to encourage them to lodge their support with Greater Anglia for a late night train.
