Student's campaign for wall of remembrance at Cambridgeshire school

A special 'wall of remembrance' has been unveiled at a Cambridgeshire school after a year of fundraising organised by a student.

Edward Ouzman from Witchford Village College near Ely began his campaign this time last year and even helped to build the wall in his spare time.

The memorial in the school grounds has now been officially unveiled as part of school's Remembrance Day service.

Construction on a £36 million bypass in Cambridgeshire will begin today.

The Ely Southern bypass project aims to cut journey times for drivers in half, on what is a notoriously congested road.

The project will also feature a new walkway.

There have been objections to the plans from various organisations, including English Heritage, who believe the new bridges would obscure views of Ely Cathedral.

It's hoped the new bypass will be open to the travelling public by spring 2018.
