Southbank goes wild to attract 'declining' bees


An area of the Southbank in London has been transformed into a wildflower meadow to launch a campaign to save Britain's declining bee population.

Friends of the Earth has put together the "meadow", which includes wildflowers and plants on which bees survive best, and it says that without bees it would cost the UK almost £1.8bn a year to hand-pollinate crops.
