Broken Front Fork - Buying Advice?

Hi All,

I have managed to snap the steerer tube on my alaminium front fork. Lucky I felt the steering go and managed to get off the bike before it came totaly apart in my hands! I hit a pot hole earlier in the day quite hard which I guess must have started the failier.

I am now looking for a replacement fork and wondering if any one could point me in the directing of some buying advice ? I am probably looking to go alaminum seen as carbon are more fragile. I wouldn't want to spend much over £100 (prefribly less) on the fork seen as the bike was bought second hand for £400. The bike is a Scott Speedster 20.

Also concerned about the rest of the frame now so wil take it in store for a check up before I spend on a new fork.

Thanks in advanced for any input.
