Members of the public are being called on to help shape the future of a national park in Sussex and Hampshire.

The South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) wants to hear ideas on how to protect and enhance the area.

The South Downs was granted national park status in March 2009, almost 60 years to the day since it was recommended.

The public can have their say on the website of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

The park covers an area of more than 1,600 sq km (618 sq miles) and stretches from Winchester in Hampshire to Eastbourne in East Sussex.
