Major County Down Road Closed As Lorry Hits Bridge

Police have closed a popular commuter route in Bangor after a lorry hit a low bridge.

It is unclear how long the Ballysallagh Road will remain closed for.

The PSNI said: "Motorists are advised to avoid the area of the Ballysallagh Road, Bangor, due to a lorry striking the bridge.

"Please use an alternative route if possible."

The road has been closed previously for the same reason.

On 22 November 2017, a vehicle hit the bridge and the road was closed until 18 December.

Signs were then put up on the bridge to avoid the issue happening again.
