The two halves of the town of Tadcaster were left divided when its historic bridge collapsed during the Christmas floods and the route is expected to be closed until the start of next year.

A temporary footbridge has already been put in place to allow pedestrians to cross the River Wharfe and reconnect the two sides of the town.

North Yorkshire County Councily say work is “progressing well” on putting in place all the measures “necessary” before the physical repairs can begin.

The Government has pledged £3m to rebuild the bridge.
