RAIL services have had to be diverted after a lorry struck a bridge in East London at 10.30am today.

The articulated vehicle struck the height-restriction warning polls on the bridge in Devons Road in Bromley-by-Bow, affecting services from Fenchurch Street to Southend running alongside the London Underground District Line.

All C2C services from Fenchurch Street have had to be diverted to Stratford and are not stopping at West Ham interchange, but tickets are being accepted on the Underground which is unaffected by the accident.

Police have had to close of Devons Road while attempts are being made to free the vehicle which was heading north towards Bromley High Street. No-one was reported injured.
