Rhyl bridge plugs gap in cycle network

Hundreds of people have attended the opening of a £4.3m pedestrian and cycle bridge across Rhyl harbour in north Wales.

Pont y Ddraig (Dragon's Bridge) provides the final link in 15 miles (24km) of car-free cycling across Conwy and Denbighshire.

It was named by Rhyl pupil Leon Jones following a schools competition and local children were invited to the opening.

Transport charity Sustrans Cymru, which part-funded the bridge, hopes it will help regenerate the area.
