David Attenborough opens transformed nature park

A huge landfill site in Essex that has been transformed into a 120-acre nature reserve has been officially opened by Sir David Attenborough.

Thurrock Thameside Nature Park at Mucking, which lies on top of 50 years of waste from six London boroughs, has been restored to grasslands, woodland and ponds.

Emily Unia reports.
