Campaigners trying to stop homes built near stately home

Campaigners are trying to stop 60 new homes being built next to a former stately home in Northamptonshire.

Overstone Hall - which is a grade II listed building - has been an empty shell since a major fire in 2001. The developers say the houses would help fund the restoration of the hall but there's been a backlash amongst many in the village.
