Update: It appears Broughton Hall Road has reopened following earlier closure.

Earlier Report:

A van has became stuck under a low bridge in Broughton this morning.

The van driver appears to have misjudged the gap under the A55 flyover bridge which straddles Broughton Hall Road.

Police are on the scene and the road is currently closed on both sides of the bridge.

Laura who sent the picture said the incident happened around 11.30am.

The low bridge which sits just 7ft 6 inches above the road is regularly hit by vehicles who’s drivers fail to see or understand the warning signs prior to driving under the bridge.

Last August a campervan was written after the driver smashed into the bridge, a campervan also became lodged under the bridge two months earlier.
