Home of WWII codebreakers gets cash for restoration

After prolonged debate over its future, Bletchley Park - home of the World War II codebreakers who cracked the Enigma code used by the Nazis - is to receive lottery funding.

Bletchley, which houses the National Museum of Computing, has won £460,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help fund its restoration and could receive a further £4.1m to transform it into a heritage and educational centre.
