WALES: Angry campaigners fight proposed truck stop near town.

Byline: By STEVE BAGNALL

CAMPAIGNERS against a truck stop on picturesque land stepped up their protest yesterday.

The Stag31 action group demonstrated their anger yesterday at plans by JD Owen Transport to build the huge truck stop on greenfield land near Caerwys.

Opponents have already handed in a 1,000 strong petition appealing to Flintshire County Council to throw out the plans.

Protestors claimed the small town would be seriously affected if the development was given the go-ahead. The site is half a mile from junction 31 on the A55 near Caerwys.

Stag31 spokesman Alan Brooke said: "This greenfield site is in a particularly sensitive area of natural beauty with views of the Clwydian hills, Sodom mountain and it is on the Flintshire Scenic Tour route.

"The people of Caerwys will suffer dreadfully with the influx of vehicles passing and down the narrow Caerwys hill and Caerwys itself."
