Businesses could go BUST in Elvington
6:47am 20th January 2010
An S.O.S is being issued from businesses in Elvington.
They've told Minster FM many are at risk of going bust following the recent collapse of Sutton Bridge.
So far it's been closed for over a week, meaning fewer and fewer commuters are passing through and spending cash.
Staff at Rydal Garage have told us their turnover is down by about £700 a day.
At the local convenience store trade has dropped by 50%.
East Yorkshire County Council have announced it could be March or even Easter before the bridge is repaired.
It says because it's a listed location there's much more paperwork than normal slowing things up.
