Se­ri­ous dam­age to rail­way bridge

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

A rail­way bridge has been badly dam­aged and cor­doned off af­ter a mys­tery in­ci­dent.

Passer-by Andy Clark said he spot­ted the fallen bricks and a huge hole in the Hythe Road rail­way bridge on Tues­day morn­ing.

The pho­tog­ra­pher said it had not been like that on Mon­day af­ter­noon but neigh­bours do not know what hap­pened.

He said: “I reckon some­thing must have crashed into it – it is quite badly dam­aged.

“But I spoke to a few peo­ple who live nearby and no one seems to have seen or heard any­thing.”
