Abergavenny livestock market campaigners vow to continue fight

The campaign group against Monmouthshire County Council's plans to move Abergavenny livestock market to a new site near Raglan say they will take their fight to the Appeal court.

On Thursday, the high court in London rejected Keep Abergavenny Livestock Market's argument that the plans breached a law dating back to the 19th Century that a market must take place there.

The site is due to be used to build a Morrisons superstore, along with a library and car parking.
