Campaigners who say they wish to preserve the history of UTV are calling for action to prevent its former Havelock House home from being turned into apartments.

Developer Olympian Homes bought the Ormeau Road building where UTV was based for nearly 60 years, with a plan to demolish it and build 271 apartments on the site.

The campaign group Save Havelock House has accused Belfast City Council planners of failing to fully consider preservation of the building.
