The bridge at Tadcaster, which has been closed for five days because of the floods, has reopened. The bridge, over the River Wharfe, was closed on Wednesday when water from the swollen river, was seen seeping through masonry.
Divers tried for two days to inspect the foundations of the bridge, but were thwarted by the strong current. However, on Sunday they managed to carry out a safety inspection which has given the bridge the all-clear.
