    Bridge to close for live stock crossing!
    What a load of old Bull ---- how on earth did they cross the river before there was a bridge -- for once the police are correct in saying this will cause chaos for the town

    Sorry! :oops:

    Suffolk Gazette is a spoof news (fake news) website. This incorrectly went into the wrong forum - Suffolk News instead of Offtopic Chat. I have corrected the feed so it now goes into the right place and had to move 20 or so articles one-by-one across!

    This week there is a planned Orwell Bridge closure or two at night I believe. I don't think it is a full closure but the A1214 etc. will see increased traffic because of it. So, there won't be closures for livestock (but knowing my luck there will probably be a closure for a broken down lorry with livestock on board...)
