Warning White Cliffs of Dover threatened by developers

Wartime 'forces sweetheart' Dame Vera Lynn has added her support to a campaign to protect the future of the white cliffs of Dover.

The sale of land alongside the cliffs has prompted fears it could be sold to developers if The National Trust can't raise one million pounds to purchase it - in just three weeks time,

But is there really any risk of that? Sarah Saunders spoke to Virginia Portman from the National Trust; heard from Dame Vera Lynn and Charlie Elphicke, MP for Dover.

It's National Chip Week so, naturally, an artist has created Great British landmarks, including Stonehenge and the White Cliffs of Dover, out of chips!

Prudence Staite spent 6 months planning and constructing the sculptures.

The White 'Chips' of Dover used a total number of 70 chips to build, taking 4 hours to build.

Stonehenge was obviously a little trickier taking 5 hours to create and using 75 of the popular potato food.
