A forum has been set up to discuss quarrying in a part of the Peak District National Park.

A Sheffield planning expert will chair the liaison group, which will meet three times a year to look at quarrying near Stanton Moor in Derbyshire.

Some residents are concerned the quarrying is too close to a famous ancient monument known as Nine Ladies Stone Circle.

James Roberson reports.
