Middlesbrough's Transporter Bridge is to undergo repairs and be repainted as part of its refurbishment.

The work to the Grade II-listed bridge is set to start on Monday and will see repairs made to its steel work.

It is part of a £2.6m project funded by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant.

Engineer Rodger Wakerley, from Taziker Industrial Ltd said the work may cause "slight disruption" but was hoping to "minimise the inconvenience to users".

The bridge was last painted in 2003.
