Repair work is being carried out on Egremont Bridge.

The bridge, which is often battered by flood waters, is having minor works taking, said a county council spokesman.

Traffic lights are in place as work vehicles block one lane of the carriageway.

The works involve securing scour pockets and some re-pointing.

The council spokesman said work was expected to be completed by tonight.

Egremont Bridge has been closed several times over the past few years after flood waters battered the structure.
