'Newsbeat' investigates whether or not Youghal needs two bridges in this report from 1965.

The old bridge had been closed in 1963, 80 years after it had been opened. Because of corrosion, a new bridge had been built between Youghal in Co. Cork and West Waterford. It  could carry 40 tons, 30 tons more than the old one. This bridge was opened in 1963, but the old one remained. Should it be demolished? 'Newsbeat' hears arguments for and against.
