There are some residual delays to rail services because of a vehicle hitting a bridge earlier.

The bridge hit carries the railway over Ship Lane in Bramford.

A spokesman for Network Rail said they were called to the incident about 8.30am.

A vehicle had struck the bridge and trains were running over it at reduced speeds.

However engineers assessed the bridge shortly after and no damage had been done to it, the spokesman added.

Trains are now running at full line speed again but there may still be some delays to services.
