New bridge traffic opening delay

A new £37m lifting bridge in Dorset is set to be officially opened on Friday despite not being ready for traffic.

Poole's new Twin Sails Bridge was due to open 10 days ago but "small glitches" caused a delay.

The council planned to open it to motorists at the ceremony, but says more checks are still needed.
