  1. Bridge hit again during BBC report on why it's hit so much

    Daz Hale

    BBC WM

    A bridge that is named among those most-hit by lorries has been hit again this morning even as I was reporting on plans to stop such strikes happening.

    Lorry

    The bridge over Upper St John Street's in Lichfield has been hit 19 times in the 12 months up to March and it was also hit twice on Monday alone.

    Fortunately, in this latest case, the yellow lorry was able to reverse back out again with the driver telling me he missed a sign about the low bridge.

    Staffordshire County Council says it's looking to work with Network Rail to find solutions to HGVs colliding with the bridge - which could include new signage.
