HENLEY Bridge will be closed for up to three-and-a-half hours when the Olympic torch passes through town. A closure order from 6.30am to 10am on Tuesday, July 10 has been made by Oxfordshire County Council in order to accommodate the large crowds expected to turn out. Spectators will be able to view the flame from the bridge as it is taken by boat from Mill Meadows to Leander Club at the end of its journey through Henley.

The company that will redevelop Townlands Hospital in Henley has been chosen. Amber Infrastructure has been awarded the £8.7 million contract ahead of fellow London developer Kajima.
