A giant 60-metre message reading #OurLand has been placed by campaigners on Warren Farm in opposition to plans to build a sports complex on it.

The centuries-old tradition involved campaigners, made up of a group of concerned residents and parents, using chalk art to create the message.

Campaigners are angry an area of the site, in Southall, will be handed over to QPR Football Club to build a multi-million pound football training facility.

A spokesperson for the campaigners, who have so far not identified themselves, said: "Thousands of people across the capital and the country are frustrated at the destruction of natural spaces. This has to stop.

"We are calling on the Mayor of London, London and UK-wide Councils to protect green space from the unreasonable privatisation of #OurLand.

Campaigners have drawn the message on in chalk

"Public land is not for sale or for giving away."

Plans for the public sports complex, expected to cost around £2m, will include new football and cricket pitches, an artificial turf pitch, multi-use games areas and changing rooms.

Chair of Norwood Green Residents Association, Tony Young, has previously said the plan offered "huge benefits" to the local community.
