Bridge is still in a fix.

THE "wobbly" Millennium Bridge could be closed for another eight months.

The firm which is trying to fix the pounds 18million Thames crossing refused to comment on speculation that it won't be open until the end of the year.

Tony Fitzpatrick, head of engineering at Ove Arup said: "We are planning a big Christmas party on the bridge."

But a spokeswoman for the firm said a date could not yet be given.

The bridge, which crosses the Thames by St Paul's, closed just two days after it opened last June because it began swaying when people walked on it.
