Controversial pieces of play equipment at King's Head Meadow in Wymondham are due to be removed tomorrow (Monday) it is understood.

Protestors are planning to gather at the site at 8am to voice their opposition to the move, which was prompted by noise complaints from nearby residents, who said they felt like 'prisoners in their own homes'.

Wymondham Town Council voted to remove pieces of equipment at the site which were installed in 2014, despite many residents and some councillors objecting to the plan.

It is estimated the move will cost up to £60,000.
