Work to restore Clumber Park’s damaged bridge begins on Monday 14th October.

The 250-year-old bridge was vandalised in 2018 when a car hit the structure and was then found burnt out.

Police divers used the incident as a training exercise and recovered the stone from the lake.

A spokesperson for the park said:
