Environmental groups have warned that a Sheffield wildlife site faces ‘irretrievable destruction’ if plans to build a new M1 service station go ahead.

The Woodland Trust, Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust and Cowley Health and Environment Group have become the latest groups to submit official objections to the plans for Smithy Wood, near Chapeltown in north Sheffield.

Hundreds of objections have been sent to Sheffield Council, including from MPs David Blunkett, Paul Blomfield, Angela Smith and Sarah Champion.
