The UB40 concert can now go ahead says the council
Plans for two open-air concerts expected to attract 5,000 music fans have been given permission to go ahead.

Cannock Chase District Council turned down the Forestry Commission's original application to host the June events after residents objected.

Bands UB40 and Embrace will now play their events after the commission adjusted its application.

Nearby residents had raised objections over traffic, fire risk, noise and environmental matters.
