Scorton villagers have given a thumbs down to Wyre Council’s proposals for possible housing sites in their locality.

More than 120 villagers packed in to the village hall for a meeting of Nether Wyresdale Parish Council to discuss Wyre’s options for its Local Plan.

Villagers raised fears about flooding, over-development and the importance of the village as a tourist attraction.
