A HOMEOWNER wants a private bridge to be built in Mordiford to allow better access to his property.

Allen Green claims that the current bridge in the village is unsafe and will not allow access to his Mangerdine home for vehicles such as a fire engine.

In his application to Herefordshire Council, Mr Green says that the new bridge, which would be situated at the site of the existing bridge, would be a 'one piece steel construction' and painted green or brown to blend into the surroundings.
