Hear a clip from Les who lived in Middleton when Langley estate was first built and recounts what it was like when the population doubled.

We rubbed along but unfortunately, Langley, it got a bad reputation and a lot of it must have been absolutely, totally unfounded but you know, people are people aren’t they. And the fact that there was 3 times more people up here than on the other side of Middleton, then anything that went wrong, chances are it would be somebody from Langley that would be involved.
