Save the Broads petition tops 500

More than 500 people have now signed an online petition on Prime Minister Gordon Brown's 10 Downing Street website, against proposals to allow the Upper Thurne and its broads to be flooded by the sea.

Plans to abandon coastal defences were discussed at a secret meeting by Natural England, the Broads Authority, Norfolk County Council and the Envrionment Agency.

Horsey Mere, Hickling Broad, the Martham broads and Heigham sound would be lost - along with six coastal villages and thousands of hectares of farmland.
