$10m reef move boosts UAE tourism

Dubai is to get a surprise tourism boost after the successful $10m (£6m) relocation of a coral reef.

At the height of Dubai's construction boom five years ago, developers moved a coral reef further out to sea to make way for new projects.

Environmentalists feared it would not recover, but the reef has grown by 20% and is now poised to give the UAE an unexpected tourism boost.
