Nato peace camp sparks residents' concern

There are plans for around a thousand anti-NATO protesters to set up camp at playing fields in the Pill area of Newport when the Nato summit comes to the city in September.

Organisers of the peace camp say the site was offered to them by Newport council but local residents claim they have not been consulted and are holding an emergency meeting on Tuesday in response.

Father Edward Mathias-Jones from St Stephen's Church in Pill told BBC Radio Wales there was concern about access to the fields, but peace camp organiser Eddie Clarke said they would keep disruption to a minimum.
