Traveller camp court fight fails

A last ditch attempt to prevent the eviction of families from the largest unauthorised traveller site in England has failed at the High Court.

Severely ill traveller Mary Flynn, 72, who lives at Dale Farm near Basildon, Essex, applied for an injunction to stop her eviction from the site where 80 families live.

Mrs Flynn suffers breathing problems and also uses an electric nebuliser. But the case was rejected by judges at the High Court on Wednesday afternoon.

Mark Easton reports.
