Cow Lane railway bridge in Reading demolished

A railway bridge in Reading regularly blamed for causing long traffic queues has been demolished.

The work to remove Cow Lane railway bridge is part of a plan to build a road which can accommodate two-way traffic.

Cow Lane was closed during the weekend as engineers brought the structure down, and reopened at 05:00 GMT on Monday.

The work is due to be completed in August 2018.
