A truck has driven straight into an historic overhead weighbridge in Soham, Cambridgeshire. Apparently it was the fault of the driver's sat nav.

The Grade II listed weighbridge is situated on a pub and is one of only two that remains in the country.

The pub's landlord, John Hartley says that it is now the fourth time this has happened.

He commented: "It was a nightmare day and upsetting to see such an important piece of history ruined like that. If a customer had not jumped in front of the lorry he would have driven away and ran a serious risk of pulling the whole thing down."

He added: "The driver did not even say sorry. He was new to the area and followed his sat nav."
