In this week's Claire Chats, I explain the situation with Bosworth Battlefield, what it's all about, what happened at the planning meeting and what we can about it.
Please so sign the petition at https://www.change.org/p/planning-hinckley-bosworth-gov-uk-stop-building-a-high-test-track-on-bosworth-battlefield, wherever you are in the world.
I think you'll also find this video from Dr Glenn Foard on the battlefield of interest:
