'Turn off the football lights,' say protesters

More than 10,500 people have signed a petition calling on a football stadium to turn its lights off.

Campaigners say light pollution - caused by heat lamps used throughout the night at the Amex Stadium in Brighton - is having a devastating impact on wildlife and insects.

'Everything is glowing. You can hear all the birds singing. It's like morning but it's only 2am.'
