Merafield Bridge in Plympton demolished

Footage has been released showing the demolition of a bridge over the A38 in Devon.

Merafield Bridge in Plympton was detonated overnight on Saturday, as part of a £6.4m project to replace the structure.

The bridge, built in 1969, was damaged by alkali silica reaction, more commonly known as "concrete cancer".
