Craig Foreman, who works at the nearby Bradford Electrical store, witnessed the accident as he walked to work. 

He said: "The lorry hit the bridge and tried to force its way through. It made a loud grinding noise which caused me to look up.

"There was a large bang and it went back two or three feet. It wasn't trapped under the bridge for long. The driver backed it up and parked it in Enterprise Way."

Network Rail said the bridge suffered no damage and the incident caused no disruption to rail services.
