We have been informed by North Yorkshire County Council that the bridge emergency waiting point downstream of Cawood Bridge is blocked by debris and the deck is listing heavily. In the unlikely event that the bridge is unable to swing a vessel could still lay alongside the emergency waiting point with caution. Skippers and crew using the emergency waiting point must not leave their vessel and walk on the waiting point pontoon.
