Opposition grows against new homes plans

Opposition is growing to plans for 1600 new homes on the outskirts of Hull.

More than 300 people have now signed a petition against the proposed development on the Bransholme estate.

Campaigners who live nearby say the development will destroy a habitat used by many birds and animals which is also used by local people to enjoy and walk their dogs. James Webster reports.

The £1m amphitheatre and peace garden will be set back from the centrepiece spire memorial.

It will provide a quiet place for people to remember those who served in Bomber Command during the Second World War.

Over £3m still needs to be raised to complete the project which will include a visitors' centre and exhibition space.
