Row in Putney over common land sold for '£1.5m less than its value'

The Charity Commission have opened a statutory inquiry into the charity that looks after Putney and Wimbledon Commons.

An area in Putney has been the subject of a row after common land was sold to Wandsworth Council for what campaigners say was one and a half million pounds less than it was valued.

The land, which was once site of Putney Hospital, is now being used to build a school and luxury flats.

Nick Evans who was formerly part of the Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators, but resigned over the issue, he spoke to London Live.

We have asked both the WPCC and Wandsworth Council for comment.
