UK - Villagers protest at new toll route

Families fighting a proposed new toll motorway to be built alongside the M6 have put up banners at the entrances to a village near Stafford. Former Seighford parish councillor Gillian Cox has organised the protest banners which have been put up over the signs at the two main entrances into Derrington. 'They say 'Another Motorway - Not on our Doorstep Thank You'. We want to show that there is strong local opposition to this four-lane expressway coming anywhere near Derrington,' said Mrs Cox, who was on the council for 21 years until resigning because of ill health earlier this month.
