Chris took a look at the bridge while in Liverppol to see the start of the Tall Ships race. He reports that the bridge looks in even worse condition than when photographed by the members of the TNC in 2003.
Tim's close-up of the ironwork clearly shows the rack and pinion system on the underside of the radial arm that kept the bridge in line as it rolled backwords.
