Delays were caused to Greater Anglia services after the roof of the lorry struck the underside of the bridge.

It happened where the line goes over Pound Lane in Bacton shortly before 1pm.

A car is also thought to have collided with the back of the lorry.

A spokesman for Suffolk police said there were no reports of any injuries.
