London’s famous Tower Bridge is closed again due to a ‘technical fault’, with drivers warned to avoid the area.

The 127-year-old bridge, which is owned, funded and managed by the City of Corporation, is currently closed in both directions to traffic.

The latest fault comes after the bridge was closed for several hours in August after the bridge’s arms, known as bascules, became wedged upright after being opened.

It is not clear what the latest technical fault is, but as of yet unverified pictures on social media show the bridge’s bascules partly open.

A tweet by City of London Police this evening reads: ‘Tower Bridge is currently closed to traffic and pedestrians due to technical failure. 

‘Please avoid the area. Updates to follow.’
