What else has been happening around Blantyre today?
This was the scene at 10am down the Calder at Milheugh Bridge today, Wednesday 15th April. A lorry coming down from Loanend got stuck at the bridge not managing to turn. It took the kindness of a couple of passing people out on their daily exercise to fine tune the steering to get the vehicle safety past the bridge without damaging it.
Unfortunately, this is happening all too often, the stonework on the bridge being damaged again in recent weeks quite significantly.
