Part of a footpath near a river in Worcester has been cordoned off after a large icicle formed.

It grew under a railway viaduct between the Sabrina footbridge and the main road bridge over the River Severn in the city.

Part of Le VĂ©sinet Promenade is out of bounds to those on foot.

A Network Rail spokesperson said the icicle was hanging from a viaduct it owned and the matter was "currently being dealt with".

She said: "Our engineers will be on site to inspect and carry out any necessary repairs."

Le VĂ©sinet Promenade is a footpath which goes between the city centre and the University of Worcester.
