The Frome Flyover

Updated: 


You know you've made something of yourself when your home town chooses to name something in your honour.

John Lennon and JFK have airports bearing their names, while many a famous sportsman can find streets named after them in the address book.

Now Jenson Button has joined the ranks, but rather than a street, Formula One's latest champion gets a footbridge in his home town of Frome in Somerset as recognition of his achievements.

"The bridge is going to be built anyway so we decided it would be a good idea to name it after him," said town mayor Damon Hooton.

Rumours that Button Bridge will nicknamed the Frome Flyover remain unconfirmed.
