Cleveland Bridge has won a multi-million pound steel subcontract on the new £790m Forth Road Bridge.

Cleveland Bridge will make steel girders to support viaducts at both ends of the new crossing.

More than 100 jobs will be created at the Darlington-based firm following the award, the BBC reported.
