GIBRALTAR will look to cash in on its role in human evolution with a new four-year plan to develop tourism.

Chief Minister Fabian Picardo has formed a committee tasked with boosting visitor numbers by promoting the Rock’s heritage and its links to Neanderthal man.

The plans include a world-first ‘Neanderthal Park’ and a commemoration of Gorham’s Cave, where a Neanderthal skull was discovered in 1848.

The site is currently being considered as a possible World Heritage site, with a decision expected later this year.

Gibraltar is the last known place where Neanderthals survived.
