Anger over Whitchurch Bridge repair delays

Work to rebuild a bridge across the River Thames will be delayed by three months because of recent flooding.

Whitchurch Bridge, which links the Berkshire and Oxfordshire banks of the river, was due to reopen in April but contractors have confirmed it will now not be ready until July.

Its operator says it "regrets the inconvenience" the delay will cause to residents and local businesses.

About 6,000 vehicles a day use the 112-year-old toll bridge between Whitchurch-on-Thames and Pangbourne.
