Sir David Attenborough supports campaign to create £1 million Suffolk nature reserve

Video report by ITV News Anglia's Kate Prout

Sir David Attenborough is urging people to support a campaign to raise £1 million and create a giant nature reserve on the Suffolk Broads.

The new reedbed would be the largest in the Broads and include several wet habitats for rare animals and plants.

"England's wildlife is under great and ever growing pressure. It is vital that we restore our land on a landscape scale so that it can support more wild plants and animals.

Please help Suffolk Wildlife Trust rescue this precious corner of East Anglia and bring back wildlife in all its splendour. By giving generously you will be investing not just in wildlife but in the happiness and fulfilment of thousands of people now and in the future."
