Pizza protest.

Defiant residents are taking a stand against plans for more takeaways in a shopping area.

Plans to turn an empty video rental store in Prince Edward Road, South Shields, into a hot food takeaway have met with opposition from angry families.

Nearly 40 letters of objection have been sent to South Tyneside Council against the proposal by Papa John's pizza company.

They say there are enough takeaways and food outlets and more will only increase noise and litter, and attract more disturbance and youth disorder.

John Needham, leading the opposition, said: "The area is plagued by groups of youths hanging around. If this application is allowed, it will become even more of a magnet for groups of youths."
