A footbridge will be closed in a Suffolk village while emergency repairs are carried out.
The footbridge in Santon Downham will be closed while emergency repairs take place, following a routine inspection by council officials.
The repair work will start Monday December 9, and the work is expected to take five days to complete, depending on weather conditions.
Located approximately one kilometre south east of the village, the footbridge carries a public right of way over the River Little Ouse.
The work will see the timber deck boards that have reached the end of their life replaced and damaged sections of the timber parapet fences will be repaired.
