Kelvedon A12 bridge damage: Lorry driver found

A lorry driver whose vehicle is suspected to have hit and damaged a bridge on the A12 in Essex is found by police.

The road was closed in both directions for most of Thursday morning after a low-loader "carrying a crane" hit the Erwell bridge at Kelvedon.

The bridge was also closed to vehicles crossing the A12.

A 53-year-old man from Witham, who was driving a low-loader with a digger on the back, has spoken to officers.

He has given a statement and officers are yet to decide whether he will face prosecution, Essex police said.
