NORFOLK, Va. - The City of Norfolk removed the "love locks" from the Hague Bridge Wednesday morning.

City crews removed the locks around 8 a.m.

According to a city spokesperson, the Norfolk City Council wants to end the grand jury process while members consider whether to allow them and, if so, the guidelines to placing locks on the bridge.

People are asked not to place locks on the bridge while the council considers whether to allow them.

Removed locks will be stored at Public Works Operations at 2205 McKann Avenue. Anyone wishing to retrieve a lock can visit this location during normal business hours.
