EMERGENCY services worked for three hours to free a van trapped under a town centre bridge.
The bridge over Prospect Hill had been plagued by problems due to its wedge-shape before Worcestershire County Council implemented new safety measures including more signage and height-warning flaps over the road.
But another vehicle become lodged in the gap shortly after midday today (Wednesday) and a team from West Mercia Police worked till 4pm to eventually free it.
Jon Fraser, the council's customer and community manager, said: "We can only put this incident down to driver error as we have not had any reported accidents involving vehicles striking this bridge since the introduction of new signage and black and yellow chevrons.
He added: "The damage caused by this collision is only cosmetic to the bridge."
