Boris Johnson has given the green light for a controversial plan to redevelop Walthamstow dog track.

Nearly 300 homes and a leisure complex are to be built at the Grade 2 listed stadium.

Waltham Forest Council approved the scheme earlier this year, now the Mayor has given his approval as well.

Campaigners are urging the government to step in, they are concerned about the loss of night time trade from the dog track.

Campaigners do not believe the new plans benefit the local community.
