A new £121m bridge is to close as a fault that closed the crossing for the second time in six weeks is investigated.

Norfolk County Council has announced it will close the Herring Bridge in Great Yarmouth at 6am tomorrow (March 14).

The bridge is set to be raised and will remain upright as "further investigations" take place.

This comes just after the bridge got stuck this morning for the second time since opening on February 1 after a major construction project.

The fault came as it attempted to raise for an oncoming boat, a county council spokesman said: "A minor technical fault prevented barriers from raising but this was quickly rectified."

Today's issue lasted around 30 minutes with no updates on how long tomorrow's disruption is expected to last.

They added: "We apologise for any inconvenience and ask all motorists and pedestrians to use alternative routes until further updates are issued."
