PROTESTORS fighting to save greenbelt land in Auchinloch are hoping to “go viral”.

Hundreds of villagers gathered recently with banners at the under threat site in Langmuirhead Road, in Auchinloch.

Developers have been given the go-ahead to build 56 houses at the location.

But residents say new homes are not needed, the infrastructure can’t cope and they fear for local wildlife.

A video of the demo attracted 364 views in just a few days.

And the Auchinloch campaign Facebook page has 54 supporters.
