The A142 at Ely station was again closed last night as rescuers had to free a lorry trapped under the bridge.

The road was closed for sometime – and diversions put in place- while the vehicle was removed.

Police warned motorists they faced “severe delays” on Bridge Road after the lorry became wedged under the bridge.

Queues built up on both approach roads.

  • As usual, van and lorry drivers don't bother to look at the signs, or perhaps they can't read them...

  • The bridge is not a problem, how can it be? Its the idiots trying to drive a 10ft lorry under a 9ft bridge. Cant the drivers read?

  • This bridge has been a major problem for as long as I can remember - and that is a very long while. Roll on the Ely Southern By-pass.
