A ROMSEY road is now open after a lorry hit a bridge in the town earlier this morning.

Police were called to the Greatbridge railbridge shortly after 9.15am after reports that a refuse lorry was jammed under the structure that carries the Southampton to Salisbury line.

Train services were halted for a time while Network Rail staff checked the bridge for damage.

The road finally re-opened at around 2pm

A police spokesperson said no one was injured in the incident. It is not known who the lorry belongs to at this time.
