A development in Harefield has been halted after newts were rumoured to be on the site.
The planned 80 home Comer Homes development on the Medi Parc site in Hill End Road is on a site which has lain empty for decades. Two weeks ago locals were stirred into protest by Comer doing some preparatory work on the site. Now the Police have had to investigate the site for Great Crested Newts after they received calls suggesting they were present on the site.
