Two of the top rated comments...
Be nice if it landed on Dale farm but the odds of that happening are too great , would make the job of reporting the crash of the sat to Earth a lot easier cause the media are there already
Fantastic idea: this would save millions for the bailiffs and naturally restore the place back to it's former glory: into a scrap-yard - this time for space debris.
You could even turn it into a space museum and Basildon council could make some money out of it.

I wonder how many fake crashed satellites will pop up on ebay over the weekend.
Make sure you get a certificate of authenticity, kids!

AGI’s animation shows UARS in its current orbit, along with its potential debris area, breakup model and the estimated debris region.
