Fight to save listed pigeon cree continues

Campaigners trying to save the allotments at Ryhope (near Sunderland) met Andy Burnham, the Minister for Culture, Media and Sport on Thursday.

The allotments include the only listed pigeon cree and are threatened with development by the landowner. The allotment holders had previously turned down a £250,000 compensation package to move off the land.
