A BRIDGE in a town near York has reopened following a precautionary closure due to flooding after Storm Babet.

Other closures elsewhere in North Yorkshire included Marine Drive in Scarborough, the A684 at Morton-on-Swale, Langton Bridge in Great Langton, B1410 The Carrs from Sleights to Ruswarp, Bar Street in Scarborough, Smay Lane in Robin Hood's Bay and Moor Lane in Leyburn.
