VISITORS will be coming in two by two for an attraction on Hampstead Heath, the businessman behind it hopes.

Jonathan Bergman of Amberden Estates, South End Green, wants to construct a Noah's Ark as a youth project.

In 2007, Greenpeace built a similar ark on Mount Ararat in Turkey, where it is believed Noah and his boat landed after escaping the floods, to highlight the global dangers of climate change.

Mr Bergman hopes to win support for a smaller version, which children and the community would help to build. Hampstead Safer Neighbourhood Police Team has already offered help.

Heath bosses The City of London Corporation didn't rule out the piece when contacted by it would need more information before it could approve it.

Any schools staff and skilled craftsmen who would like to get involved in the project can contact Mr Bergman at j.bergman@ amberden.co.uk.
