East Midlands Trains also plans to provide nearly 500 additional seats for fans travelling to the 3pm kick-off.

The 11.57am service from Norwich will be double the usual length – four carriages – and the 5.39pm return will be a six-carriage train with more than 300 extra seats available.

Neil Micklethwaite, of East Midlands Trains, said the companies had been working together, adding: “We know that this will be a memorable day for all Norwich City fans and we want to make sure their trip to Peterborough gets off to a great start.” See www.eastmidlands trains.co.uk

Yes. The bridge is owned by Railworld, which at present is closed for the winter, but yesterday there were volunteers manning the car park for football parking. One of them asked whether we would like to use their facilities.

There was also overcrowding later on in the evening, as fans stayed behind to celebrate getting later services.
