County council engineers say they are putting up temporary four way traffic lights at the B1093/ B1098 junction following damage to Boots Bridge, Sixteen Foot Bank.

A council spokesman said: “This is to make sure we can carry out repairs safely as well as protect other road users.

“We hope to have it fully repaired by the end of next week, weather and materials permitting.”

The bridge has been the scene of accidents over the years, the most recent a three-vehicle collision last December.
