The Tower Bridge in London was stuck open for over more than an 24 hours on Saturday, giving new meaning to the popular nursery rhyme ‘London Bridge is falling down’. Pictures of the bridge’s two arms pointing upwards at different angles went viral along with the hashtag #londonbridge. 

In a tweet, the City of London Police informed the people that the bridge was closed. “Tower Bridge is currently closed to pedestrians and traffic, due to a mechanical fault. Mechanics are currently working hard to fix the bridge. Please find alternative routes,” they tweeted.

The incident was apparently due to a technical glitch in the servers that usually keep the bridge running smoothly. The crossing opened on Saturday at 4pm to allow a ship to sail down the River Thames but the bridge's arms failed to close again. This caused official to close it for testing, which lasted for 24 hours. The bridge was reopened for use at 5.30pm on Sunday.
