Crossing the re-opened Forth Road Bridge

Traffic has returned to the Forth Road Bridge after the completion of temporary repairs.

The first cars were allowed back onto the crossing at 05:20 after engineers welded a splint onto damaged steelwork.

Heavy goods vehicles will remain banned until further work is carried out, with this scheduled for completion by "mid-February".

Kevin Keane reports.
