Campaigners demonstrate their naked ambition for the future of Bodmin.

A woman representing Lady Godiva is going to ride a horse through the town centre.

She is leading a march against its masterplan, which includes building five thousand new homes.

Organiser Orlando Kimber said: "It's a twenty year plan that includes building up to five thousand houses, which would effectively double the size of Bodmin. Bodmin is a town that really needs that investment in the infrastructure before the increase in the numbers of people.

"Everyone loves to see a beautiful girl, but the point is, it's a woman who's really stepping enormously outside of her comfort on behalf of other people, to make everyone aware that there's something to be seen and understood."
