11 March, 2019 — By Helen Chapman, Samantha Booth

A LORRY is stuck under a railway bridge in Camden.

London Fire Brigade were called at 3.38pm to Randolph Street and have two fire engines and a fire rescue unit on scene.

A 32-tonne tip lorry carrying seven tonnes of scrap metal is stuck under the railway bridge, said an LFB spokeswoman. No one has been injured.

She added: “Crews are cutting the scrap metal to free the lorry.”

Transport for London said Network Rail have allowed services to start again but it will take a short while for London Overground services to return to normal.

Commuters are being warned of “severe delays” on the Overground this evening between Camden Road and Stratford and Richmond / Clapham Junction.
