    A terrible sight to see yesterday as that fine old bridge succomed to natures onslaught ,however the town has been flooding for eons and the bridge has had structural issues as a result, im wondering if these checks have been thorough enough over the years ,im sure someones head will be put on the plate at some point, perhaps use can be made of the unused railway bridge a half mile downstream it is a significantly younger structure , why not carry out a survey of this its a possibility surely

    There are a number of similar bridges around the county which will be experiencing similar pressures, I imagined a lot of checks are currently being carried out!

    In this day and age when trips are made back and forth to the moon, surely a bridge able to withstand almost anything could be built-Yes! I know it's a matter of priority and $$$$

    Sam Smith's brewery and John Smith's brewery side by side, like Left Twix and Right Twix.

    Now it's the local football club providing the land, personally I'd rebuild the whole bridge making it wider to cope with the larger traffic flow .

    Lovely to see the Tories rock up to meet the natives - on the wrong side. "It was always our intention to visit both sides of the bridge".

    Bullshit. They don't give a ****. Remember when the Thames flooded and Cameron gave it the "We're a rich country" schtick? They only spend money on people who vote for them. Even if everybody voted for them, they'd still have their priorities. They don't care about us. Cameron might turn up in wellies and Barbour, but really he doesn't give a ****. There will be no "Northern Powerhouse". It's the new "Big Society". Just an idea. No action, no money, and no real will to make it happen. Stop voting for these cunts. You're mugging yourself off.
