Protestors leave Leek roundabout

Campaigners evicted from site

A roundabout at the heart of a campaign in Leek has now been almost completely removed.

Protestors had been camped out on the site in front of the war memorial for more than two weeks to prevent work to replace it with traffic lights.

But they left this morning, after Staffordshire County Council won the right to evict them.

The authority says the changes will improve traffic flow, and bring more business to the town.
