Paul Murphy

The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust say they are concerned that hostile comments made by 'vocal objectors' are putting people off from having their say on revised plans for a visitor centre at Spurn. 

There were angry scenes at the East Yorkshire beauty spot last week after the trust's new plans went on display. 

The original designs were rejected two months ago after campaigners raised concerns about the visual impact and flood risk.
