Melton's Town Estate investigated


BBC Inside Out takes a glimpse behind the closed doors of a multi-million pound charity in Leicestershire, which has sidelined women.

Melton Mowbray's Town Estate is supposed to be democratic, yet it would not allow public scrutiny of its meetings.

The organisation changed the rules and locks when a woman was elected to a senior position and ignored advice from the Charity Commission.

Tony Roe finds out what is going on in the Leicestershire market town and attends the Town Estate's annual meeting - but is refused access.

The Town Estate refused to take part in the BBC Inside Out film despite several requests over the past 10 months.
