Migrant crisis: ‘Wrong plan, wrong place’ – Linton-on-Ouse residents protest asylum centre

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Migrant crisis: ‘Wrong plan, wrong place’ – Linton-on-Ouse residents protest asylum centre” – below is their description.

Angry protests aren’t something you’d associate with the pretty North Yorkshire village of Linton-on-Ouse – until now.

Residents are frustrated and furious with the Home Office’s announcement that the former RAF base there will soon become an asylum reception centre for up to 1,500 people.
