Police are monitoring high winds on the Orwell Bridge tonight.

Drivers heading home for the festive period are asked to approach the bridge with care – and a spokeswoman for the force said officers are monitoring the wind speed and could take the decision to close it later on.

Traffic is slow leading up to the bridge in both directions.
