Twenty two hectares of intertidal habitat for plants and wildlife will be created at Fingringhoe near Colchester.

The Environment Agency and Essex Wildlife Trust are working together to breach the existing sea wall, allowing land to flood and creating salt marshes for wildlife to thrive.

"Within a year we will have salt marsh plants colonising the site and on the first tide the waders and wildfowl will come in on the water and be a great new reserve and an extension to the existing one ."

His grandfather Karl was an SS officer who managed slave labour in concentration camps.

He was supervising concentration camps slave labourers there. And his family knew, or certainly my father and his siblings knew nothing of this. My grandfather must have seen people being hung, he must have seen them with skeletal bodies yet he was going home to a normal family."
