Investigation continues into bridge collapse

Investigations are continuing into why a footbridge in North Yorkshire collapsed, causing two men to fall into the river below.

A 65-year-old was taken to James Cook University hospital by Air Ambulance with a head injury and a suspected broken arm.

Another man, in his fifties, was taken by road to Scarborough hospital.

The pair were part of a shooting party at High Askew on the North York Moors.
