bridge collison image 460Traffic has now returned to normal after an earlier incident in which a large vessel appeared to be involved in a near miss with Cobden Bridge. Read more to watch an amateur video of the incident.

 

A spokesperson from Cobden Bridge Residents’ Association said she was "absolutely furious".

She told bitternepark.info it had been an "incident just waiting to happen” after previous dredging work had made upriver access possible for larger craft.

The footage shows just how close the gargantuan cruise ship – and bridge – came to disaster.
