The lorry became stuck under the bridge

Drivers on Miry Lane and Prescott Street have been delayed by the incident on Thursday morning.

Despite a sign stating “low bridge,” the driver of the lorry clearly misjudged the size of the vehicle, which became wedged under the bridge blocking traffic.

Traffic lights control the single lane under the bridge, meaning traffic travelling both ways have been impacted.

This is the latest of many disruptions caused by stuck lorries and vans at this location, which has been a constant headache for Network Rail.
