Eastham Bridge reopens after 2016 collapse

A school minibus driver who reversed off a bridge moments before it collapsed was guest of honour at its reopening.

Drivers have faced a 10-mile detour since the Grade II listed Eastham Bridge, in Worcestershire, fell apart, causing most of it to plunge into the River Teme.

Derek Trow, who in May 2016 reversed his primary school minibus off the bridge before the collapse, was the first driver on the new £2m crossing near Tenbury Wells.
