A lorry crashed through the wall of a railway bridge and ended up on its side.

Emergency services were called to the bridge at Castle Cary in Somerset shortly before 9.30am this morning. 

The driver of the lorry was stuck in the vehicle, which was left hanging over the railway line, but has since been freed. 

A British Transport Police spokesman said: "BTP officers were called at 9.26am to Station Road near Castle Cary station following a report of a lorry crashing through the walls of a bridge overlooking the railway track.

"The cab of the lorry is reported to have been partly dangling off the bridge and debris had fallen onto the tracks.

"The driver has since been freed from the lorry. He suffered injuries that are not described as life-threatening."

The line towards Yeovil Pen Mill is disrupted following the incident.

Great Western Railway services between Westbury and Taunton were affected, but have since returned to normal.

There is still disruption on the Westbury - Weymouth line. 

Network Rail engineers are working to make the line safe and have urged passengers to check updates before they travel.

Great Western Railway has warned that train services between Westbury and Weymouth may be cancelled, delayed or revised.

Disruption is expected until the end of the day.
