Council approve controversial housing scheme

A controversial housing development close to Newmarket racecourse, has been approved by the local council despite a big protest campaign that tried to get it stopped.

It'll see 400 new homes built on Hatchfield Farm just off the A14.

Developers say it'll meet demand for much-needed housing. But there are fears from some that it could threaten the future of the town's horse racing industry.
