Cumbria Police have announced that Cocker Bridge has finally reopened.

The historic bridge, which links Cockermouth's Main Street and Market Place, was closed on Saturday when cracks were spotbted on the surface.

Diversions were put in place and the county council moved in swiftly to assess the damage.

Now, after residents shared their delight of hearing the bridge was expected to reopen, the platform is now available for road users and pedestrians.
