DRIVERS in Upton-upon-Severn are reminded that the Upton bridge (A4104) remains closed to all traffic.

A number of drivers have reportedly been putting themselves and others at risk by ignoring road closure signs.

A statement by West Mercia Police said it was thought that they may have been travelling along the route under the mistaken belief that it had reopened, following incorrect rumours.

A shuttle truck, run by the military, remains in operation over the bridge while it is closed to traffic to enable pedestrians to still come and go from the town.
