Wallingford bridge remains closed after leak

An ancient bridge over the River Thames in Oxfordshire is likely to remain closed until later this week.

The 400-year-old crossing, at Wallingford, was damaged due to a burst water main which has since been repaired.

However the rupture has caused the road to subside, Thames Water has said.

More repairs are expected to be made to the bridge later in the week once structural engineers have assessed the damage.

The bridge is one of the main routes into the historic market town.
