Does Reading need a third bridge over the River Thames?

It's a debate that's divided opinion in Berkshire and Oxfordshire for more than 50 years and it's been re-ignited following the recent bad weather. Should there be a third bridge over the River Thames in Reading to ease traffic congestion?

There's support for the plan in Reading but as Mel Bloor reports, people across the border in South Oxfordshire aren't so convinced.

Interviewees: Petition creator Adele Harbor, Cllr Keith Baker from Wokingham Borough Council and Reading East MP Rob Wilson.
