Campaigners in Suffolk are fighting plans for a new housing development which they say will ruin the rural character of their village.

The proposals for nearly 150 homes in East Bergholt have been put forward by developers.

However, 'Action East Bergholt' says the development would damage important agricultural land.

"The impact we think on the landscape will be absolutely horrific.

What we're saying is we don't want 144 homes here but there are other locations within the village where developments can take place and we have no issue whatsoever with it."
