One of Cambridgeshire's most bashed bridges has been hit yet again.

Stonea railway bridge was hit by a van as it tried to negotiate under it last night Sunday - despite doszens of signs warning of its low ceiling height.

The bridge, which was closed for 16 months after being seriously damaged after being hit 13 times in 2019, had its height lowered by 10cm as a result of those repairs making it just 2metres high.

It reopened in February this year and just one day later it was hit and it has been hit several times since the most recent before last night's incident was in October when a caravan became wedged under it.

In November it was revealed closure of the bridge is being considered as part of major rail enhancements planned to increase the number of trains that run through Ely each day.

A police spokesperson commenting on last night's incident said: "Tonight an officer from the Fenland Neighbourhood Policing Team attended the railway bridge at Stonea after a van tried to go under it.
