David appears on BBC TV News talking about the A18 Melton Ross Railway Bridge

A reporter from the BBC interviewed David and the owners of Barney's Cafe about the roadworks on the A18 Melton Ross Railway Bridge.

In July 2013 European rules changed, and the bridge was reclassified as "weak". Lincolnshire County Council introduced a single -lane, traffic-light controlled contraflow on the bridge, and put up signs to divert all HGVs around that part of the A18. This had a huge impact on the passing trade at Great Limber.

During all this time no work appears to have been done to strengthen the bridge and reopen it.

Let's hope this TV appearance will speed things up!
