The railway line between Norwich and London is now open after a lorry hit a bridge earlier today.

The collision with the 10ft-high bridge on Pound Hill in Bacton, about 12 miles south of Diss, happened at about 1pm.

A Renault van also hit the back of the lorry which became wedged under the bridge. There were no injuries.

The line was closed in both directions.

National Rail examined the bridge for damage before opening it again around 3.20pm.
