MOTORISTS heading to Wirral faced delays this morning after a lorry struck an overhead light in the Birkenhead Tunnel.

Merseytravel was alerted to the incident shortly before 11am today, Wednesday and saw the tunnel closed for just over an hour for those travelling from Liverpool to Birkenhead.

A spokesman said: "A lorry turned over and because of the way it turned it damaged one of the lights in the roof. No one was injured."

The debris was cleared away and the tunnel was fully reopened shortly before 12pm.
