After completing checks, the train line between Maidstone and East and Otford, which runs through the nearby Borough Green and Wrotham station, was reopened just after 10am.

Trains will be running at a reduced speed over the bridge while further inspections are made.

"Officers attended the scene where no injuries were reported."
