The tractor and muck speader that damaged this bridge was a contractor working for severn trent, spreading processed sewage cake, the spreaders carry roughly 15 tons of cake + spreader + tractor. they really shouldnt have been using that bridge.
I know that after this incident they stopped using bridges such as this to access fields.


I bet the H&S bill was more than the actual job was worth. Probably took 'em two days to put up the sign.

1:30pm I've just updated this post, since David and Bruce commented on it. New photo, also linking to BBC and the Derby Evening Telegraph stories.

Nice post, Andrew. We'll make a journo of you yet!


Keep up the good work

As it appears to be a farm accomodation bridge, I wonder what would happen if BW just took the bridge down until they got agreement for the full rebuilding cost? Perhaps the farmer might encourage his insurance company to be a little more cooperative.
