Local UKIP MEP James Carver has called for a thorough investigation following the collapse of Eastham Bridge, near Tenbury.

 

    

 

“Given the number of vehicles that use this bridge it was extremely lucky nobody was injured. Questions need to be raised including when was the bridge last inspected and was this event preventable?

 

“Given the poor condition of the road network in our region it is vital local councils implement a thorough review to help avoid such circumstances. With significant government cuts to local authorities the consequences are now being felt.

 

“The mantra of Invest to save must be adopted by local authorities to help avoid such potential tragedies. A full investigation must take place and people held to account if necessary.

 

“Local events like this demonstrate the true cost of long-term austerity and where the Government should be investing tax payers’ money instead of wasting it on unnecessary vanity projects in Europe,” he said.
