THIS is the moment a supermarket delivery van was left damaged after smashing into a railway bridge.

A viral video captured what happened after the Asda delivery vehicle hit the structure near The Keep in Woollards Way, Brighton.

More than 3 million people have watched footage of the blunder, which was shared on social media website TikTok.

The 12-second clip, posted by a user called Chaosreignz, shows the extent of the damage, with the van mangled by the force of the collision.

Hundreds of shocked users were quick to comment on the mistake, with one claiming the vehicle looked more like a "rhombus" than a delivery van after the crash.

One said: "Asda thinking their vans are as low as their prices."

Another added: "Tell me you’re getting fired without telling me you’re getting fired.

User @bettwys said: "Do you think they'll notice back at the depot?.

While another said: "Oh dear, Asda now have a job vacancy."

The surge in online grocery shopping came amid the national lockdowns which saw thousands of hungry shoppers opt for home delivery, rather than visiting supermarkets.

Yesterday, the Prime Minister announced the country would be sticking with Plan B despite record case numbers and rising pressure on hospitals.

Boris Johnson said there is a “good chance” he will not impose fresh restrictions to tackle the massive wave of Omicron cases, as he backed sticking to current measures.

He said: “So together with the Plan B measures that we introduced before Christmas we have a chance to ride out this Omicron wave without shutting down our country once again.

“We can keep our schools and our businesses open and we can find a way to live with this virus.”

The Prime Minister accepted the weeks ahead are going to be “challenging” and said “some services will be disrupted by staff absences” as he pledged to “fortify” the NHS to withstand the pressures and protect supply chains.

Under the measures, he said 100,000 “critical workers” including those in transport, policing and food distribution will get lateral flow tests on every working day starting on Monday.

“As our NHS moves to a war footing, I will be recommending to Cabinet tomorrow that we continue with Plan B,” he added.

“Because the public have responded and changed their behaviour, your behaviour, buying valuable time to get boosters in arms and help the NHS to cope with the Omicron wave.”

Asda have been contacted for comment.
