Flood-damaged footbridge replaced

A footbridge in South Yorkshire which collapsed during flooding two years ago is to be replaced.

Powder Mill bridge in Worsbrough, near Barnsley, runs over the River Dove. Rising flood waters caused it to collapse in June 2007.

A new £151,000 steel bridge, designed for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders, is being installed.

The bridge has been funded by the Department for Transport as part of Barnsley's flood damage claim.

The work, which starts on Monday, is expected to take about 10 weeks to complete.
