Rail services on a commuter line have been delayed after an articulated lorry smashed into a bridge
Photographs of the truck tweeted by Network Rail showed a section of the trailer lying behind the heavy goods vehicle near Blake Street station in Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands.
The crash at about 7.30am on Monday disrupted services on the Cross City line, which links Redditch and Lichfield via Birmingham's New Street station.
Network Rail said the rush-hour bridge strike caused residual delays and some cancellations.
