Call for tunnel at Stonehenge to protect heritage status

There's been a fresh call for a tunnel on the A303 in Wiltshire to avoid traffic driving past Stonehenge.

MPs were told today that the landmark is in danger of being put on UNESCO's "at risk" register because it is so close to a busy trunk road.

Today the area's MP, John Glen, used a Parliamentary debate to call for a deep tunnel, similar to one scrapped in 2005, as a permanent solution to the problem.
