A Grade II-listed railway bridge has reopened after months of work to restore it to its former glory.

Network Rail spent more than £1m on Worcester's Foregate Street railway bridge to preserve it for the future.

Initial work in November found various steelwork sections had suffered extensive corrosion and its drainage system also needed work.

The bridge, which dates back to 1860, dominates Foregate Street, one of the main routes to the city centre.
