A Norfolk bridge which was fenced off due to health and safety concerns is still yet to reopen.
The bridge at Lenwade, along Marriott's Way, was closed to the public in December due to rotting timber.
In a statement Norfolk County Council said the bridge, near Porters Lane, was closed following an inspection by engineers.
They said the closure was prompted by 'structural weakness' in the decking discovered during a routine inspection on December 5.
The council had said the structure would be closed to the public until January.
