A Mercedes 190E makes history in North Yorkshire

The market town of Tadcaster in North Yorkshire made the news in late December 2015 when severe flooding caused the partial collapse of the 18th century bridge that crosses over the River Wharfe. After 13 months of work, the bridge, which is the only road connecting the two sides of the town, was re-opened to traffic yesterday, and the first cars made their way across.

Leading the parade for this historic moment? A 1988 Mercedes 190E.
