Plans for a major expansion of a North Yorkshire holiday park have been refused.

The Raithwaite Estate, near Whitby, wanted to build 190 new holiday homes as well as a leisure centre and restaurant.

Scarborough Borough Council turned down the planning application citing concerns over the impact on nearby ancient woodland.

The development was opposed by the nearby North York Moors National Park.
