Two people are occupying an apple tree in Stroud in protest at a housing development. They say they are prepared to stay there to protect a badger set and prevent the tree from being chopped down.
The developer of the site, who didn't want to appear on camera, says he has been careful to preserve wildlife habitat. But the protesters are preventing him from getting on with his job.
