18-tonne lorry was driven over bridge
A LORRY driver has been fined £1,000 after breaking a weight restriction on an historic Derbyshire bridge.
Derbyshire County Council prosecuted Terry Jacobs, of Foredrift Close, Redditch, following the offence at Swarkestone Causeway.
The bridge is a scheduled ancient monument and is covered by a 7.5-tonne weight restriction imposed by Derbyshire County Council to protect it from damage.
Jacobs drove across the causeway in the direction of Derby on March 30 in a Volvo lorry weighing 18 tonnes.
