'Pocket park' plans for Blackheath attract opposition

Plans to create a "pocket park" in Blackheath Common, south-east London, have attracted opposition from some local residents.

Pocket parks, which are being encouraged by London Mayor Boris Johnson, are small areas of green space providing a place to sit outdoors and often a children's playground.

However some residents believe Blackheath Common is already as green as it can be and should not be built on.

BBC London's Angela Walker reports.
