    Derby City Council has confirmed the Alfreton Road bridge could be closed until late November, as we reported this morning.

    An engineer from the authority said a burst water main in August had left the 180-year-old bridge leaking "like a colander".

    The council says it's hoping the vast majority of the repairs will be paid for by Severn Trent. An official admits "there will be a lot of debate" with them.
