Great Yarmouth bridge closed
A dilapidated Great Yarmouth bridge has been closed to pedestrians and cyclists after one of its planks collapsed.
Norfolk County Council blocked off the 19th century bridge with barriers on Wednesday.
The Fairbairn-type-box-girder bridge is mainly used by people going to the town's railway station or the Asda supermarket.
The bridge owners, Railway Paths, will be inspecting the damage to see what repairs are needed and is working on a diversion route for pedestrians and cyclists.
It is hoped the bridge can be re-opened as soon as possible.
