Neighbours are fighting plans for a hot food take-away next to their homes.

The property in Berkhamsted High Street was used by Castle Insurance brokers before the firm went bust.

Now there are plans to reopen the shop as a take-away food outlet, but neighbour Chris Cann said this will mean more rubbish, smells and bad parking for the area.

He spoke out at a planning meeting of Berkhamsted Town Council, which has echoed his concerns.
