Chaos as lorry collides with Bickleigh Bridge
A lorry has collided with Bickleigh Bridge, an ancient stone bridge on the A396 in Mid Devon, this morning. Devon & Cornwall Police has already warned of traffic delays on the key arterial route near Tiverton. The collision happened at around 4am and diversions have since been put in place by Highways England.
It won’t just be drivers frustrated by the incident this morning, Devon County Council had only just carried out urgent repairs to install new protective ‘anti climb’ kerbstones on the Grade II listed structure. It is not yet known whether the new additions have been damaged by the smash. The bridge dates back to the 1600s.
If you saw today’s incident, contact police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting log 119 of 18/5/21.
