Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

Po­lice were forced to close a busy road in Ash­ford af­ter a lorry be­came lodged un­der a rail­way bridge.

Of­fi­cers were called to Chart Road at about 2.35pm on Fri­day af­ter the truck be­came wedged un­der the struc­ture.

The road was closed be­tween Tem­pler Way and Maid­stone Road for sev­eral hours while the lorry was re­cov­ered.

The road was re­opened af­ter engi­neers from Net­work Rail ex­am­ined the bridge to make sure it was safe for traf­fic to pass.

The in­ci­dent caused lengthy de­lays be­cause driv­ers use Chart Road as a route from the Tank Round­about to the town cen­tre.
