A bus became stuck after squeezing under a railway bridge at Bexhill in Sussex. It happened on the Hastings to Eastbourne line. Southern trains reported some disruption to services, but things are now back to normal.
Network Rail, The British Transport Police and Sussex Police were all called to deal with the incident.
They called it the 'second Battle of Hastings' - when environmental campaigners descended on a small corner of Sussex in a bid to stop a link road from being built.
For seven weeks the resulting protests caught national attention, but four years on what has been the fate of Combe Valley?
A year ago the road between Bexhill and Hastings was finally opened at a cost of some £127million but how has the landscape adapted as more developments are planned?
Andy Dickenson reports and speaks to environmental campaigners Andrea Needham and Anthony Bradnum, as well as John Shaw, chief executive of Sea Change Sussex.

The victims aged 23 and 29 were set upon and tied up by several men - one was holding what looked like a firearm. The flat on London Road was searched by the intruders - but Sussex Police said nothing is known to have been taken. It happened at about 4.25pm on Saturday 25th February. Four men in their twenties were arrested later - on suspicion of aggravated burglary. Sussex Police are appealing for witnesses.

The moment that double glazing workmen removed the front door of a house in a dispute with the homeowners has been captured on CCTV.
The door was recently fitted to the home of a couple in Bexhill-on-Sea. But when they refused to pay the balance, the company removed the door.
The couple say the door was not what they ordered. The firm says it delivered and fitted the correct door.
