A WILDLIFE haven which is home to one of the UK's most threatened animals is to benefit from an �8,000 grant.

Tewinbury Nature Reserve, near WGC, has been given the money by East Herts Council.

The grant will be used to remove scrub which is threatening the habitat of the water vole - the UK's fastest declining mammal.

Other wildlife, including bullfinches, yellowhammers and otters will also benefit from this work, while a new hide with improved access for disabled people will also be installed.
