A van has got stuck under a notorious low bridge - just days after a large message was graffitied on to it warning people to take care.
The Abbey Farm low bridge is one of the 10 most hit by vehicles in the UK.
The make-shift graffiti deterrent has been added in white paint to both sides of the low bridge in Thetford warning 'Low exit, no vans!'.
But a motorist has ignored the new makeshift warnings and attempted to drive through the 2.2 metre gap.
Every time the bridge, which links Station Road to Mundford Road, is hit it has to be inspected for structural damage causing delays to rail services in and out of the town.

Network Rail is running a campaign to highlight the issue and said on average there were 2,000 railway bridge struck a year, with each costing more than £10,000 for repairs and compensation to train operators for delays caused.
