RADLEY Parish Council said today it would carry on battle to protect Thrupp Lake from the bulldozers.

It comes despite a recent decision by power company RWE npower to put on hold plans to dump fly ash into Thrupp Lake.

The parish council has vowed to carry on with the judicial review of Oxfordshire County Council's decision not to register land around Thrupp and Bullfield Lakes as a town green.

The county council's planning and regulation committee backed a ruling by an inspector following a public inquiry.

However, campaign group Save Radley Lakes refused to give up and has launched a £40,000 appeal for funds to support the judicial review.
