Meeting over vulnerable children's home plans in Stockton

Stockton Borough Council is meeting to decide whether to controversial approve plans to turn two properties into homes for vulnerable children in the area.

Decision will 'benefit children'

Two properties will be turned into homes for vulnerable children in Hartburn and Stillington.

Stockton Council's Cabinet made the decision despite opposition from some residents.

Those backing the plans say it will benefit the young people, none of whom have criminal records or are a danger to people.
