Lendal Bridge Closure Could Keep Tourists Away From York

Lendal Bridge

7:34am 18th September 2013

There are fears tourists could stay away from York because of the Lendal Bridge closure.

Geoffrey Blundell from Loftus was visiting the city and got snapped by the number plate cameras on the first day fines were issued.

Around 600 drivers a day were falling victim to the cameras in it's first week - although we still don't have official figures.

The head of Visit York Gillian Cruddas says those who cross the bridge should be given a yellow card first.

We're waiting to hear back from York Council.
