Residents: 'There has to be a limit to growth'

Residents are unhappy at plans to build thousands of homes in and around Yeovil. Residents opposed to the plans filled a council meeting today to try and get the proposals scrapped.

David Cloke, who lives in East Coker, say there is little support for the plans that could see homes built in the historic village.

Discussions by South Somerset District Council could go into tomorrow before a decision is reached.
