Plans to expand the Osbaldwick travellers' site should be examined by independent experts according to a York MP.

Julian Sturdy says the city council aren't running the site properly and questions if the expansion is needed.

The York Outer MP has three reasons he's opposed to the adding the six extra caravan pitches.

 
The city council have responded saying the law states it's okay for the council to judge it's own application - unless Local Government Minister Eric Pickles calls it in - which he hasn't done.
