The Tadcaster Citizen community Facebook page is reporting a worrying development.

It states:

We are just hearing news about a crack in the road bridge which goes over the Wharfe from Boston Spa to Thorp Arch.

“We are told that the road over the bridge is closed to traffic & pedestrians & traffic is being diverted via Wattlesyke roundabout and Moor End.”

More on this when we get it.
