Close-up look at damage to closed section of M1

Richard Scott takes a close-up look at the repair work being done to a damaged bridge, which has kept the M1 closed for several days.

The motorway had been closed between junctions 1 and 4 since a fire started in a scrapyard on Friday.

Steel pillars were put up beneath the bridge when the fire caused concrete to explode, as Jonathan Griffiths of the Highways Agency, explained.
