Weather-damaged Somerset bridge is closed

A Somerset bridge has been closed because of damage caused by vehicles and severe weather.

Essential maintenance to Simonsbath Bridge, near Minehead, is expected to take between six and eight weeks.

Diversions will be in place and barriers have been placed at the site to discourage drivers from using the bridge.

A Somerset County Council spokesman said: "We apologise for any inconvenience."
