Rising river water wipes out scaffolding on bridge


News sources have reported that scaffolding on the bridge in the centre of Milnsbridge, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire has partially collapsed as a result of rising river levels last night.

The bridge over the River Colne has been undergoing strengthening works and a partial road closure has caused traffic chaos.

The scaffold platform under the bridge has been made unsafe, though Kirklees Council says the damage is unlikely to cause delays to completion of the works.
