Big wheel plan for historic town
A Warwickshire town could get a big wheel, similar to those set up in London's Hyde Park, Birmingham and York.

Wheel in the Park Ltd wants to erect the wheel at Stratford-upon-Avon, by the River Avon, and has applied for planning permission.

The wheel will remain on the site until the end of October this year, subject to planning approval.

But critics said the development does not suit the historic town.
