A heavy goods lorry carrying a JCB has been freed after becoming stuck under a railway bridge in Edinburgh.

Emergency services have reopened Lady Road, near Cameron Toll, following the incident which happened just after 13:45.

It said the line was used for freight trains rather than passenger services.
