A new bridge designed to ease traffic has opened across the river Elbe in Dresden.

But the crossing has sparked a row. The Dresden Elbe Valley had been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Now UNESCO has voted to remove the status from the valley because of the new construction.

It is the first time a European site has been delisted.
