The Humber Bridge is the next UK suspension structure to have its main cables inspected.

It is 15 years younger than the Severn -? and celebrating its 25th birthday this year. General manager Peter Hill told NCEI that he would bring forward internal cable inspections by 10 years to take place in the next five years.

'We're obviously interested in what has happened on the Forth and Severn as we all share the same type of cables.

'We're looking at historical construction data. So far our external inspections haven't revealed any unexpected damage, ' said Hill.
