The Öresund Bridge between Denmark and Sweden has reopened again after an accident briefly forced the operator to close the bridge in both directions on Wednesday.

The bridge reopened at around 10:30am, operator Öresundsbron wrote on Twitter.

A closure in both directions was caused by an accident on the bridge, according to the operator's Twitter account.

The accident involved a single lorry that lost control and collided with the central reservation, Copenhagen Police confirmed. No injuries were reported.

Snow and ice have resulted in hazardous driving conditions across Denmark and southern Sweden on Wednesday.
