They are some of our most treasured landmarks, but all too often they are suffering neglect and decay. Historic England has revealed the latest additions to its "at risk" register.

For the first time, a whole area of Brighton has been included. So how can our heritage be saved? Malcolm Shaw has been finding out.

The Bell Tower at Chichester Cathedral, Mersham Court Barn in Kent and Fort Purbrook in Hampshire are among the 28 historic gems newly added to Historic England's Heritage At Risk Register 2016 in the South East.

However 53 entries have been successfully removed from the Register this year in the South East including the Gothic Temple at Shotover Park in Oxfordshire, Sheerness Dockyard Houses in Kent, and the Romano-British villa site in West Sussex.

Historic England's Heritage At Risk Register gives an annual snapshot of the condition of some of the South East's most important historic buildings, sites, monuments and places.

Over the past year, Historic England has offered £471,000 in grants to help 13 of the region's best loved and most important historic sites.

More than a hundred and fifty people will sleep outdoors in Reading tonight to raise money to tackle youth homelessness.

Many of those at the tenth annual 'Byte Night' at Forbury Gardens are from local IT firms. They're hoping to hit a target of raising £150,000 in sponsorship money. Since the first event in Reading in 2007 they have raised one million pounds for the charity Action for Children. The cash will pay for counselling and support for young people at organisations including Here4Me in Newbury.

There are ten other locations across the country holding similar 'sleep out' fundraising events.

Sally Hanson the Chair of the Action for Children 'Byte Night' board said it was a very worthy cause.
