BREAKING: Major London Bridge closed

Hammersmith Bridge has been closed to all members of the public after safety inspectors found the recent heatwave had worsened cracks in the 133-year-old structure.

According to MetroUK, boats will also not be allowed to pass under the bridge, which is used by up to 16,000 people every day.

A repair bill of £140 million could be needed to keep the decaying bridge secure in the long term.
