Wildlife and countryside groups attack progress on nature

The government is failing to deliver a third of its commitments to protect the natural environment, a report says.

It has been compiled by 41 organisations, including The Wildlife Trusts and the RSPB, under the umbrella of Wildlife and Countryside Link.

The proportion of the 25 commitments that are falling through has worsened during the government's term, it says.

Environment department Defra rejected many of the criticisms, saying they were based on "opinion, not facts".
