London’s Tower Bridge has become stuck, causing large scale traffic problems in London.

A technical fault has caused the bridge to remain ‘open’ for ships. Unfortunately, that means that cars and motorists are unable to use it.

The London landmark is one of several bridges over the River Thames.

On Monday afternoon the bridge opened for a large wooden ship to pass through. However, the 127-year-old bridge was unable to close.

It is not known how long the bridge will be stuck for.

Tower Bridge was built in the Victorian period and is considered one of the most famous bridges in the world. Connecting the Square Mile to Southwark, it opened in 1894 after eight years of construction. Its bascules are typically raised about 800 times a year.
