A LORRY got stuck underneath a railway bridge causing delays for motorists and train passengers.

The HGV was being driven towards the city centre on Doncaster Road when it got wedged under a bridge close to the Redbeck motel.

Police said the incident, which was reported at 11.20am and was still ongoing at 4pm, caused queuing traffic.

And Network Rail said train services between Kirkgate and Pontefract were stopped for about 45 minutes while the bridge was checked for damage.
