RAF Scampton: residents react to proposals to house 2,000 asylum seekers at airbase

Communities Editor

RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire is best known for being where the “dambusting” bomber squadron was based during the Second World War.


The huge site closed for military use back in March with the Government saying it wants to accommodate up to two thousand people there who are seeking asylum.


The local council and many residents object to the plans but not everyone is opposed.
