Essex travellers 'want to stay near family'

Irish Travellers explain how important their homes on Dale Farm in Essex are to them.

Travellers and Gypsies at Dale Farm, Europe's largest traveller site, have been ordered to leave after 10 years of legal wrangling.

They have until the end of August to go but have warned they will not do so without a fight.

The Big Gypsy Eviction is on BBC One Thursday 21 July, 2235 BST.
