The Steve Prescott Bridge will light up green on Wednesday evening in memory of the 71 victims killed in the Columbia plane crash tragedy.

The plane was flying Brazilian first division football team Chapecoense to Columbia for a regional tournament final when it crashed near Medellin, killing 71 people.

As a mark of respect, the bridge will be lit green, the colour of Chapecoense’s home kit.
