The £49m Ely southern bypass passing over the River Great Ouse and two railway lines in has officially opened.

It will provide a huge boost for the area and will ease congestion in and around Ely by providing a new link between Stuntney Causeway and Angel Drove.

It officially opened to the public at 4pm today (October 31).
