LORRY STRIKES BRIDGE


Tamworth Road was closed after a lorry travelling towards Long Eaton struck the Railway Bridge near Long Eaton Station. The incident occurred around 7.15am on Friday October 16th. As a result of the crash debris fell into the road. Engineers were called to assess the condition of the bridge and after they gave the all clear police reopened the road. No one was injured but the closure caused chaos for the Friday morning rush hour and by 7.30 the congestion meant traffic on the A52 was crawling along at 10mph.
