The possible loss of a much-used community amenity comprising a duck pond and country walk have residents in Winchburgh up-in-arms.

Builders Stewart Milne Homes have submitted amended plans to West Lothian Council for a 37-home development on land at Glendevon Farm and Steading, which locals claim breaches the master development plan adopted and agreed by the council in 2010.

An emergency meeting will take place tonight in the village, with planners promising to extend the deadline for comments after an IT glitch.
