Tyneside's Scotswood Bridge shut for clean-up

A bridge on Tyneside will be closed to traffic on Sunday while essential maintenance work is carried out.

The Scotswood Bridge will be shut from 06:00 to 18:00 to enable workers to clean gullies and joints, as well as check and repair lighting.

High power jets will be used so the bridge will be closed because of a risk of flying debris.

Diversions will be in place, and Gateshead Council apologised for the inconvenience.
