A bridge in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, has collapsed, with concerns that a nearby gas pipe has ruptured.

The area around the bridge, over the River Wharfe, has been evacuated, as Ben Ando reports from the scene.

Shops and businesses in the main street of the small market town have been badly affected by flooding since the weekend.

The bridge had been closed for the past two days.
