PASSENGERS were hurt and rail services delayed when a double decker bus got stuck under a railway bridge near Ipswich.
The accident, at Bramford, happened at about 1pm yesterday and two people suffered minor injuries from broken glass.
Structural engineers were called to the scene to assess the damage to the bridge, which is used by intercity trains on the Norwich to London line.
Train drivers were ordered to go over the bridge at a crawl, causing delays, and cars were diverted through other routes.

A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said two people were injured, both thought to be passengers on the First Eastern Counties bus, and traffic had to be diverted after the road was closed for up to two hours.
A spokeswoman for rail operator One said: “Safety is our first priority and trains were cautioned to slow down to a snail's pace across the bridge. Services were running just that bit slower, but it did not disrupt trains too much.''
