Southampton's Central Bridge reopens after repairs

One of the busiest routes for motorists into Southampton has reopened after repairs lasting for more than a year.
Central Bridge, which brings drivers into the city centre from the east after crossing the Itchen Bridge, was closed in February 2010.
The listed structure, which had started to crumble, underwent repairs to strengthen metalwork and brickwork.
It used to span several rail tracks before the main railway station was moved more than a mile away.
The work on the bridge dating back to the 1880s was carried out by Network Rail.
