Lorry stuck after railway bridge crash next to Raynes Park station
There was commotion on a quiet side road this afternoon after a lorry became stuck in a railway bridge.
The accident happened at about 3pm in a non-through road next to Raynes Park station, in which it appears the lorry drove underneath the railway line and exceeded the maximum height restriction.
Passersby on the ground - and on the train line above - watched as the lorry blocked the tunnel, with the driver having to let down the tyres and try to get the vehicle through.
A witness, Ben Steele, said: "It looks like he was carrying scrap metal because a girder has become stuck too.
"There were a lot of people standing around and taking pictures, some cars were complaining they couldn't get through.
"But to be honest it's quite jocular. People are having a bit of a laugh and taking photos. I suppose it helps it's a nice day today."
No injuries have been reported.
