There's anger tonight in Stratford after the government has been accused of ignoring the wishes of thousands of people, the local MP and the council - and told a developer it could build two huge new housing estates near a Shakespearean house.
There's been a petition against it. The council turned it down. But the developer appealed - and the secretary of state Eric Pickles gave it the go ahead. Tonight there's a threat of legal action against the Government.
