Dale Farm eviction halted by last minute injunction
The eviction of Dale Farm, the largest illegal travellers' site in the UK, has been put on hold after residents won a last minute legal reprieve.
Bailiffs representing Basildon council had already entered the camp and served eviction papers when news of the injunction came through.
It is the latest step in a long and bitter legal battle that has already cost millions of pounds.
