Legal campaign to stop salad farm near Andover

Environmental campaigners from Hampshire have gone to the High Court to try to stop a salad company building near a protected nature site.

Vitacress Salads, near Andover on the Bourne Rivulet, already has permission from Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council to extend its site by 40%.

Protesters, led by Peter Evans, say last month's diesel spillage by the firm shows the area is too fragile to allow more development.

They have mounted a legal challenge against the council's decision.
