Carrow Bridge Road will be shut while "urgent repairs" take place - costing about £30,000.

Football fans have been assured that Carrow Bridge will not be shut immediately before and after Norwich City's Saturday home fixture against Premier League champions Manchester City.

As a result, the road will close today, Saturday, 14 September, at 10pm and reopen on at 8am on Sunday, 15 September.

Last weekend during a routine inspection, Norfolk County Council found a number of defects in the timber decking road surface which needed to be urgently repaired.

It is the third time in little more than a year that the lifting bridge has needed repairs.

The council thanked people for their patience while the work is carried out.
