Full Report: Lendal Bridge closes in York

Drivers in York are accusing the council of milking them for cash, after dozens of them were caught out by new restrictions on Lendal Bridge.

For the next six months anyone driving over the bridge between 10.30 in the morning and five in the evening will be fined 60 pounds.

York City Council says the move was well publicised locally - but tourists have continued to use the bridge, unaware of the new restrictions.
