Grazing goat causes train delays

A goat caused delays to commuters when it decided to graze on a railway line between Ipswich and Cambridge.

A train driver spotted the goat - initially thought to be a llama - on the track at Baylham, near Ipswich, Suffolk, at about 0650 BST.

Commuters suffered long delays as all trains in the area were halted before Network Rail staff got the animal away from the track.

Normal services were resumed at 0720 BST, a Network Rail spokesman said.
