Yesterday's protest march at Aylestone Meadows

From today's Leicester Mercury:
Nearly 400 people, some with horses and dogs, turned out yesterday to protest against plans for a football pitch on a nature reserve.

The Save Aylestone Meadows campaign wants members of Leicester City Council's planning committee to reject a proposal for a floodlit pitch in Braunstone Lane East when it meets next week.

The plans have been recommended for approval by officers despite the site in Aylestone Meadows being part of a nature reserve and designated "green wedge".
Save Aylestone Meadows will be holding a gathering outside Leicester Town Hall at 4 p.m. next Monday before the planning committee meeting that will consider the application.
