A DRIVER was left red-faced after he got the height of a bridge wrong and ended up stuck.

The trailer of the lorry was damaged after it hit the underneath of a bridge in Baileyfield Road, off Harry Lauder Road, just after 12.30pm yesterday.

The road was closed while police helped to release the vehicle. It re-opened at around 2.10pm.

Although the lorry was badly damaged, the bridge structure suffered no ill-effects.
