A SMALL village bridge has been closed to all vehicles.

Little Braxted Bridge in Little Braxted Lane, Witham, was shut on Monday, February 17, to allow repair work to take place.

Workers have been restoring and replacing posts and rails on the bridge to keep it safe.

The closure remains in place until next Wednesday.

Pedestrians and cyclists can still use the bridge but all vehicles must take the specified diversion route.

Drivers are being asked to drive through the middle of Witham to avoid the closure.
