How to build a bridge in less than 30 seconds

Here's how to build a bridge in less that 30 seconds - thanks to some timelapse filming.

The 23-tonne bridge was lowered into place in Lower Castle Park in Colchester as part of a new cycle and walkway.

The new crossing over the River Colne links to the National Cycle Network as well as a more direct route from Colchester North Station to the town centre.
