Romford ice-rink row

Romford is set to get a brand new ice rink in two years time - but not everyone is happy.

For those who use it, that's two years without a rink at all, as the existing one is pulled down to make way for a new supermarket.

And parents fear that some talented youngsters will miss their golden window to develop into top-class athletes.
