WILDLIFE expert and TV presenter Chris Packham has put his weight behind a campaign to stop a five lane road bridge being built over an otter habitat on the river Lune.

Campaigners in Halton have produced evidence that up to 14 otters, which are a protected species under European law, are living, breeding and fishing on a stretch of the river near the current motorway bridge.

Plans for the new bridge as part of the Heysham M6 Link would see part a 200m stretch of woodland 80m west of the motorway being pulled down and built over.
