British Transport Police were notified at 9.53am but said no one was injured.

It is not the first time a lorry has collided with the bridge.

On January 16, there were long delays in the town when a refuse lorry struck the bridge.

The vehicle collided with the structure just before 7.30am, with recycling spewing from its side.

There have been several other incidents at the same bridge over the years and in November 2015, another after a lorry hit the railway bridge.

The HGV became wedged prompting police to close the road while engineers assessed the damage.

The lorry was freed and taken away by a crane and the road has was re-opened the next day.

The incident doesn't seem to have caused any delays to train services.
