An Oxfam campaigner from York is dressing up as a land girl and heading to London today to highlight the plight of third world land owners.

Harriet Milligan says an area the size of York is being sold off to investors in poorer countries and that means local people lose the land that grows their food.

Oxfam is hoping Parliament will take notice and put pressure on the world banks.
