People living at Mistley in Essex are celebrating after winning a court judgement which will allow them to use the village's waterfront quay.
The area was sealed off by the owners of the Port of Mistley in 2008.
Residents argued that it was legally classified as a village green and they had a right to use it.
They formed a group called 'Free the Quay' which today (October 5) won a Court of Appeal judgement which upheld the quay's status as a village green.
The decision of the Court of Appeal will not result in the immediate removal of the fence along the edge of the quay - but residents are calling on TW Logistics to take it down.
The Free the Quay campaigners are planning to hold a celebration on October 14.
TW Logistics have been approached for comment.
