London’s Tower Bridge reopens after being stuck for hours

Tower Bridge in London has reopened after becoming stuck overnight.

The bridge’s bascules were unable to close properly – leaving them apart for more than ten hours.

Traffic built up either side of the bridge from mid-afternoon on Monday.


The problem wasn’t resolved until the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Tower Bridge is a vital traffic and pedestrian link across the Thames.

It also allows ships to pass underneath.

Closures always cause jams.

The bridge – one of the most famous in the world – was built by the Victorians more than 100 years ago.
