The developers behind a large shopping development in Bradford say they are committed to finishing the project.
Protesters have moved in to the site in the city centre, angry that building work has not been taking place and the Westfield project was mothballed in 2009.
Westfield Shoppingtowns Limited have written an open letter to the protesters, saying the development has fallen foul of the financial crisis, but they remain committed to Bradford.
Plans for a multi million pound shopping centre in Lincoln go before the council's planning committee today. If approved, the Lindongate scheme could create more than 2,000 jobs. Proposals include a new bus station, transport interchange and department store as well as new shops and restaurants.
