Flood-hit bridge built in 1800s at Lang's Ford reopens

An ancient bridge in Somerset is to reopen after severe flooding in 2008 led to its collapse.

Lang's Ford in Broadway was originally built about 200 years ago to aid the running of a mill.

The bridge endured many years of bad weather before the heavy flooding caused its collapse.

Somerset County Council worked with the community and Broadway and Horton parish councils to build a new steel bridge.
