The first complete refurbishment of Scarborough's Valley Bridge has begun at a cost of almost £1m.

The bridge, constructed in 1933, carries the A165 across the town's Valley Ravine.

The four-month restoration work will include the replacement of the decorative balustrade and steel fence.

North Yorkshire County Council said the bridge would remain open to traffic apart from during the delivery and removal of materials.
