Dale Farm residents 'to resist' eviction

Travellers on the Dale Farm site at Crays Hill in Essex who face eviction on Monday say they will resist the action.

A number of families have moved from the unauthorised plots, but those staying have spent Sunday making last-minute preparations, reinforcing barricades and building a wall to block the bailiffs' entry point.

A last-minute meeting between residents and the council was cancelled after representatives were told by protesters they were no longer welcome.

Resident Kathleen McCarthy told reporters that the residents were "living in hope" that they will not be made to leave.
