    No that's a relatively short bridge.

    Not Bridgend but the end is bridge (see above for further hint).

    Not that either.

    That's a bit of lateral thinking, pity it's wrong.

    I'll make it open floor for the moment, as I am struggling to think of anything decent and challenging.

    Sorry. The bit about breathing oil fumes is literal not cryptic

    Hint:

    The answer doesn't include the name of any county but it is the only way.

    "Dither and delay" comes first in this local authority area, even though it's in strong Brexit territory!
