Great crested newts and the wildlife value of specific 'brownfield' sites featured this week on BBC’s The One Show.

Wildlife presenter Mike Dilger talked about his trip with Froglife to Hampton Nature Reserve. This former brickworks in Peterborough is now a haven for amphibians and reptiles, holding what’s thought to be Europe’s largest colony of great crested newts.
