Pontesford Hill fundraising gets under way

A group of Shropshire people have started fundraising in an attempt to buy a local beauty spot.

Pontesford Hill near Shrewsbury - known as The Sleeping Dragon - was sold by the Forestry Commission in 2010 to a private investor who planned to develop it into a burial ground.

Members of the community and Shropshire Wildlife Trust need to generate more than £200,000 to purchase the hill and turn it into a nature reserve.

BBC Midlands Today's Bob Hockenhull accompanied some of the fundraisers to the peak.
