There are concerns that a broken major road and river bridge in Norfolk could have a serious impact on tourism unless it is fixed soon.

The Haven Bridge is an important river crossing used by thousands of drivers every day in Great Yarmouth. But it's also crucial to river traffic - it has to be raised to give large boats access to and from the Broads' river system and the North Sea.

The bridge hasn't been able to open for weeks leaving bigger ships stranded either side.
