The firm responsible for the Westfield shopping development in Bradford have made a plea to protesters to vacate the site.
"Occupy Westfield" set up camp in the area known as the "Bradford hole" last weekend because they say they want to force the council to get on with building work. The area was cleared in 2006 to make way for a shopping centre, but has remained undeveloped since.
Westfield Shopping Towns have written to the campaigners to say their actions are counter productive and could put off retailers.
