Delays to services between Westbury and Weymouth via Yeovil Pen Mill
Due to a road vehicle colliding with a bridge between Westbury and Castle Cary the line is closed. Disruption is expected until 10:00 12/05.
Train services between Westbury and Weymouth via Yeovil Pen Mill may be delayed

Bridge appears to be to the west of Westbury.
