Chris Evans buys Dunlop Bridge from Donington Park

Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans has bought Donington Park race track's famous Dunlop bridge.

The 30-year-old structure was sold during a racing memorabilia auction, for about £300, in aid of a Leicestershire charity.

On his show, talking to Lynn Bowles, Evans said the bridge was a national landmark and appealed for help getting it from the track.

"All kids listening to this show would say 'yeah, why would you not buy a bridge?'," he said.
