EXCLUSIVE: Richard Madeley on Roman Circus

A campaign to save Colchester's Roman Circus is being backed by one of Britain's best known TV hosts.

Richard Madeley is a patron of the efforts to restore the site. He has been exclusively telling Heart why he got involved. He said: "It just seems to me its a no-brainer. If your lucky enough to live in a country that has extraordinarily rich history going back so long and so far in such an unbroken way, it is our job to preserve it."

He added: "I will make a contribution, I will send something to the fund, its just getting as many people as you can to talk about it, because once these things are lost, the chance to preserve them has slipped through our fingers, it never comes back."

The campaign is now just £7500 short of its £200,000 target, with 5 days to go to raise the funds.
