Fight to save historic battle site

The site of a 15th Century battle during the War of the Roses has been put up for sale.

More than 500 years ago, a field on the outskirts of Tewkesbury was the scene of one of the bloodiest battles between the Houses of York and Lancaster in the War of the Roses.

The land, known as the Gastons, was the subject of a public inquiry more than a decade ago when developers wanted to build houses there.

Now its owners have put the land up for sale and local people say they face another battle to save it.
