Cotswolds wildflower meadows being restored

Wildflower-rich grassland is to be restored in the Cotswolds in a new project.

Scientists say 97% of species-rich grassland in England and Wales has been lost since the 1930s.

A typical patch can contain more than 100 species of flowering plants supporting butterflies, other insects, birds, bats and other small mammals.
