Queensferry Crossing closure

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

"The Deputy First Minister and Transport Secretary were briefed on the closure of the Queensferry Crossing

"They have been brought up to date on the efforts of the operating company who are constantly monitoring the structure.

"Our immediate priority is the safety of bridge users and we remain focused on that while we assess the situation to enable the bridge to re-open as soon as possible. Any wider investigations can take place once the bridge is re-opened.

"Due to a unique set of weather circumstances the bridge will remain closed and a further update will be provided during the course of Tuesday (February 11th). We are working with public transport partners to strengthen their services, where feasible."
