Granite has been taken from the ground at the Mountsorrel Quarry in Leicestershire for more than 150 years The firm which runs it says new stone is running low. Plans could secure the site for another 40 years, but residents say they are not being consulted about the changes.

The planning application is still being considered by Leicestershire County Council which says it is likely to consider it later in the year.
