Muslims in Leicester who use a temporary mosque say they will not have anywhere to pray if city councillors close it down.

The Northfields Education Centre on Essex Road was given permission to operate as a mosque for 12 months.

Some local residents have complained about the effect on parking and noise in the area.

The council has received two petitions, one for, one against the planning application, both with about 230 names.
