Came View protesters, many from Fordington Field, took to the fields in a dramatic escalation in their action. Setting fire to the land of the proposed site of over 1000 homes they have made the ground work of any new building very difficult in the future. The flames could be seen as far as Broadmayne and Poundbury and sent a clear signal to the WDCC that these proposals will be challenged every step of the way.
A spokesperson for the protesters, known only as ‘Bull’s Head’, told The Field, “We will not allow these council nobodies to destroy our county town. They think we are a push over but they know different now.”
A second protester, referred to only as ‘Colliton’, told us exclusively, “It will not end here. If they are not prepared to listen we will simply up the ante.”
Here are dramatic pictures of the torching of the field at Came View.
