Workington's Calva Bridge faces uncertain future


Cumbria County Council's Andrew Butler says it is "too early to say" what will happen to one of the most badly damaged bridges in Cumbria, Calva Bridge in Workington.

Hundreds of bridges in the county are being carefully assessed for damage caused by the floods of the past week.

Mr Butler said he thought the damage put Calva Bridge "beyond repair", but options for re-connecting both sides of the river were being examined.
