CAR-mad Ra­dio 2 DJ Chris Evans has bought rac­ing cir­cuit Don­ning­ton Park’s world fa­mous Dun­lop Bridge – for just £300.

The pre­sen­ter an­nounced he’d snapped up the iconic 230ft land­mark at a char­ity auc­tion on his break­fast show on Mon­day.

But now he’s got to find a way of trans­port­ing the bridge to his home – and may have to ap­ply for plan­ning per­mis­sion.
