A road bridge across a railway has been closed to vehicles after it was found to be too weak to support them.

The bridge is on an unnamed road off The Street, between Aylsham and Burgh, near Valley Lane, Spratts Green.

The structure, spanning the Bure Valley Railway, is now off limits to vehicles until further notice, but pedestrians and cyclists can continue to use the bridge.

A signed diversion for vehicles will be in place.

Norfolk County Council said it wanted to thank people for their understanding.
