A bridge that has been deemed unsafe has been closed after parts of it were found to be rotten.
A timber bridge on footpath Shouldham and Wormegay has been closed after a recent inspection by Norfolk County Council (NCC) found parts of it to be rotten.
As a result the footbridge has been temporarily closed until repairs can be carried out as it is currently unsafe to use.
