Motorcyclists who were told to leave a former motocross site in Cambridgeshire so it could be turned into a nature reserve say they're furious that nothing's been done with it.

It's two and a half years since the last race meeting was held at Block Drove near Chatteris.

But, as of yet, no action's been taken to improve the habitat for wildlife.
