Pensioners protest war memorial move

Local people angry at plans to move a war memorial in Havant to make way for the redevelopment of the high street, are protesting against the proposal.

The local authority wants to change the cross roads where the memorial sits into a square, as part of the town's redevelopment.

But members of the Havant 50 Plus Forum are leading a protest to stop the council from moving the memorial further down West Street.

They say it would be disrespectful to those who gave their lives during World War 1 and World War 2.

The council says the plans are only the "start of the debate" about how the region could be redeveloped.
