Stonea rail bridge in the Fens has been hit again - less than a week after a van was sliced in half when it also failed to negotiate the underpass.
Just after 8am agricultural machinery - thought to be a carrot topper - hit the bridge as it drove under the bridge after the rail gates were shut to allow for a train to pass.
However damage to the bridge has prompted vehicles to be banned from using the under pass whilst engineers assess the damage.
A temporary road block has been set up whilst investigations continue into the damage.
