Transplus Lorry Takes on Charlton BridgeA Transplus Lorry drove under the notorious bridge in Charlton this morning, causing the back end of the vehicle to collapse.

The bridge is quite famous locally for vehicle victims that think they can sneak underneath, but fail to make it through.

Other HGV’s and Double Decker buses have failed to read the warning signs leading up to the bridge and on the bridge itself, today the driver continued through to the other side causing the back end to collapse in on itself.

One onlooker told Andover & Villages, “No one was hurt, but the driver looked very embarrassed.”
