A LORRY carrying a crane has crashed into a railway bridge in Blackburn.

Police and recovery vehicles were called at 7.50am this morning to Plane Tree Road, Little Harwood, after the crane became lodged under the bridge.

The front wheels of the lorry were lifted into the air, and the rear of the lorry was pushed into the road, damaging the surface.

Blackburn with Darwen Council highways team were also called to the scene, after fears the damaged surface would be unsafe for motorcylists.
