Dale farm reprieve: Council 'disappointed and frustrated'

Travellers at the UK's largest illegal travellers site, at Dale Farm, Essex, have won a court injunction delaying their planned eviction.

Residents won the injunction restraining Basildon Council from clearing the site pending a further High Court hearing on Friday.

Basildon Council leader Tony Ball said that he was "disappointed and frustrated" at the latest development in the saga.

He said the council had not yet been able to put its side of the story forward, and that he was confident that the court would find in its favour once all evidence in the case was considered.
