Hundreds of commuters suffered delays getting to work after a lorry got stuck in Mirfield railway bridge.
Engineers had to be called out to check the safety of the bridge, which carries the main Huddersfield to Leeds railway line.
National Rail said warning signs indicating the height of the bridge was clearly visible to road users but that didn’t stop the driver attempting to drive through it at 7.40am this morning.
His actions inconvenienced both motorists and rail users with services between Huddersfield, Leeds and Manchester being affected.
A National Rail spokesman said: “All lines were stopped to allow the bridge to be inspected.
“The lorry was clearly too big for the bridge but in the end only minor scrapes were found on it.
