Hundreds queue for jobs queue at new Center Parcs

More than 1,000 people turned up hoping to get a job at what will be the eastern region's newest attraction.

Woburn Forest in Bedfordshire will be the country's fifth Center Parcs. The village, set in nearly 400 acres on the Duke of Bedford's estate, will cost £250m.

Construction work, which started in the spring, will employ 1,200 people. Even more staff will be needed when the complex opens to the public in 2014.
