A lorry overturned and spilled fuel across the road, after hitting a low bridge, which has claimed the dubious title of being Britain's 'most bashed bridge'.
The crash happened at around 2am this morning, when the lorry hit the Watling Street bridge on the A5 in Hinckley.
Network Rail described the Watling Street bridge as the 'most-bashed rail bridge' in the financial year 2019 to 2020 as vehicles struck it 25 times.
Between 2020 and 2021 it slipped to sixth in the rankings. These are the most struck bridges in that time frame, according to Network Rail.
