Harwich Mayflower Project to build life-size replica

Help

A town in Essex is claiming America's Pilgrim Fathers travelled to the New World from the east coast, and not Plymouth.

Campaigners at the Harwich Mayflower Project now plan to build a £2.5m life-size replica of the ship, funded through donations, and sail it across the Atlantic.

BBC Look East's Simon Newton reports.
