Greenham Common Control Tower to be kept for community

It was once home to an American nuclear tactical strike squadron, but now work is underway to transform a former control tower in Berkshire into a visitor centre.

The building on the edge of Greenham Common has been disused since the airbase closed in 1993.

The local parish council is behind the new project but as Mel Bloor explains, they've got a big job ahead of them.

Interviewee: Tony Forward, Chairman of Greenham Parish Council.
