Controversial eviction of Dale Farm travellers to begin

Preparations have started to evict hundreds of travellers living illegally at Dale Farm in Essex.

The eviction is expected to begin on Monday following a 10-year legal battle.

During their campaign to stay, the travellers won the support of a UN committee and activists from around Britain and Europe.

Fergal Keane reports from inside the community.
