New railway bridge in Brinkworth labelled a 'monstrosity'

People living in a Wiltshire village have described a new railway bridge as a "monstrosity".

Network Rail replaced a Victorian bridge at Brinkworth with a modern structure as part of its rail electrification programme.

Angry villagers say it looks like a tin can or an armoured personnel carrier. Network Rail said it had to balance the heritage of the railway with the best use of taxpayers' money.
