Former James Bond, Sir Roger Moore, has added his voice to the campaign to restore and preserve Bletchley Park, the World War Two codebreaking centre.

Roger Moore visited Bletchley Park to promote the launch of six James Bond films on the Blu-ray disc format.

Arriving in typical 007-style at Bletchley Park by helicopter, Roger Moore drove himself the short journey to the Bletchley Park Mansion in the chic new Aston Martin DBS.

He met with World War Two codebreaker Mavis Batey, who has recently released a book entitled "From Bletchley With Love" about Ian Fleming's wartime work. He also posed with some of the famous vehicles from the Bond films, before telling journalists that the government should be stepping in to provide funds for the preservation of Bletchley Park.

Simon Greenish, Bletchley Park Trust director, welcomed the support. He said, "This year we have been encouraged by incredible support from an array of prominent individuals who have visited Bletchley Park, including the Prince of Wales, New Zealand prime minister Helen Clark and Fran Allen, the AM Turing award winner.

"There is clearly heightening national and international awareness of the urgent need for funds for the restoration and preservation of Bletchley Park."
