The Humber Bridge, near Kingston upon Hull, England, is a 2,220-metre (7,280 ft) single-span suspension bridge, which opened to traffic on 24 June 1981. It is the seventh-longest of its type in the world. It spans the Humber (the estuary formed by the rivers Trent and Ouse) between Barton-upon-Humber on the south bank and Hessle on the north bank, connecting the East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire – both of which were briefly in the short-lived non-metropolitan county of Humberside. The bridge itself can be seen for miles around and as far as Ottringham in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The Humber Bridge is the fourth-largest single-span suspension bridge in the world. More than 200 incidents of people jumping or falling from the bridge have taken place since it was opened in 1981 with only five surviving. As a result, plans have been considered to cage off, or introduce higher fencing along the walkways of the bridge.
