The driver of a van which hit the Station Road bridge in Ely this morning (Tuesday) told officers: “I’m normally in a smaller van”.

The vehicle has since been removed and the road reopened.

A post on the East Cambs Police Facebook page said: “Did you know that the railway bridge on Station Road, Ely is the most hit bridge in the UK? The driver of this van didn’t!

“The big yellow writing, numerous warning signs and two large light up signs were not enough to stop them.

“Their excuse..... ‘I’m normally in a smaller van’.”

It continued: “This is not a good enough excuse and they have been reported for driving offences.”

There was no reported damage to the bridge. Police were called to the incident at 9:15am.
