Another vehicle has smashed into the infamous Stuntney Bridge in Ely despite large “very low bridge” warning signs.
A van was wedged stuck under the notorious structure – nicknamed ‘Britain’s Most Bashed Bridge’ – this afternoon (September 11).
The latest strike comes after it was revealed that cameras would be installed by Network Rail in a bid to “reduce the implications” caused by each hit.
Cameras will capture images of the bridge deck, allowing faster examination in the event of a bridge strike.
A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “We are currently dealing with a lorry stuck under Stuntney Bridge in Ely.
“While recovery is underway please expect some delays and, if possible, avoid the area.”
