There are concerns over plans by the Crown Estate to sell off dozens of homes in Somerset, which it's claimed will leave some tenants homeless.

The Crown Estate, which is one of the largest landowners in the country, is planning to sell off up to 45 of its properties around Taunton and Dunster.

Tenants are being given the option to either buy, or up to six months notice period to vacate their properties.
