Drivers in Oxford suffered delays this morning as a lorry narrowly avoided getting stuck beneath the Botley Road railway bridge.

Police were called at 10.15am as the lorry approached the bridge from Frideswide Square.

Thames Valley Police spokesman Chris Kearney said: “When the lorry driver realised the lorry would not be able to fit under the bridge, he reversed back.

“No-one was hurt and traffic is now flowing again.”
