Queues of traffic built up this morning after a lorry became stuck underneath a bridge in Amersham.

The lorry was pictured stuck underneath Blackhorse Bridge at 07.42am on Monday (August 1).

The bridge, which is just before a busy junction with the A404, has a height restriction of 14 feet, three inches - and clearly the lorry would not have fit underneath without damaging the vehicle or the bridge.

Morning commuters were left frustrated as they were forced to turn or wait in the traffic which tailed back over "half a mile" onto Woodside Road.

Inrix, the traffic data company, is no longer reporting traffic in the area following the incident.
