A group of Orpington, Kent residents took direct action when Orange attemped to build an 11 metre mast near their homes.

A dozen or so protesters occupied the site of the proposed erection, barring the way to builders. They stayed put until Bromley Council refused planning permission to build the 'visually intrusive' mast, This is Local London reports.

It's a victory. But probably not for long: Orange has successfully appealed the decision with the Planning Inspectorate in Bristol.

The builders will be back. How long can the residents of the Tubbenden Lane/ Farnborough Way area withstand the pressure?

A UK lobby group, Mast Action, a branch of Campaigning for Planning Sanity, offers online advice on how to lodge objections against mast planning applications here. ®
