The Scott Mills Bridge closed following fire


The Scott Mills Bridge, based at Fleet services over the M3, has been closed following a fire.

The disaster struck on Wednesday 14 December when a fire ripped through the southbound services destroying a large part of the building. Firefighters were sent to the scene to tackle the fire, with over 50 tackling the blaze overnight.

The footbridge, which was named after Scott Mills earlier this year, however remained structurally safe but will be closed for some time due to smoke logging. The building is not expected to re-open until mid-January.

The bridge was opened in March after Chris Stark’s appeal for buildings to be named after the Radio 1 DJ.
