Protestors object to Bangor development

People objecting to a County Down building project have held a protest demonstration.

About 60 people attended the protest outside a North Down Council meeting in Bangor on Tuesday over a proposed development in the town centre.

The residents are opposed to a five-storey building with 32 apartments on the site of an existing car showroom.

Planning permission was to be passed at the meeting, but following the protest the decision has been been put on hold.
