Trav­ellers urged to stop protests

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TRAV­ELLERS at the UK’s largest il­le­gal site in Es­sex have been urged to clear bar­ri­cades and stop non-res­i­dents from protest­ing, in line with a court or­der.

Basil­don Coun­cil have given a plot by plot break­down of how they plan to clear Dale Farm as re­quired by a court in­junc­tion.

Coun­cil leader Tony Ball said: “We have com­plied with the judge’s or­der and pro­vided the sched­ule as re­quested.

“The in­junc­tion also places obli­ga­tions on the trav­ellers to dis­cour­age any fur­ther protest from non-Dale Farm res­i­dents and to dis­man­tle the bar­ri­cades and any ob­struc­tions pre­vent­ing ac­cess onto the site.”

Res­i­dents have un­til Thurs­day to raise any is­sues with the coun­cil. On Mon­day they won a late court in­junc­tion pre­vent­ing the clear­ance of 51 unau­tho­rised plots un­til Fri­day.

Res­i­dents and their sup­port­ers are ex­pected to open the heav­ily bar­ri­caded main gate to the site to­day, to al­low in a school bus to pick up chil­dren.
