Trains travelling between two seaside towns were halted after a lorry crashed into a railway bridge.
The vehicle struck the overpass in Ramsgate Road, Margate, at about 10.25am today.
A tweet by Southeastern Railway said: "Reports of the rail over-road bridge being struck on Ramsgate Road #Margate, Network rail response staff are en-route to the bridge but due to the possible damage trains will be held until the bridge can be inspected. Trains Margate-Ramsgate will be disrupted."
All lines have since been reopened.
A Southeastern spokesman said: "A mobile operations manager was in swift attendance, and confirmed that trains were okay to continue, with the line through reopened within 15 minutes."
