Somerset council leaders have waded into the row over the proposed eviction of people from the Crown Estate. Councillor John Williams and Tim Taylor have written to both the Prime Minister and the Queen on behalf of residents who could lose their homes near Taunton.

The 45 homes that are owned by the Crown could be sold to make more money for more urban investments.
