Dale Farm: Travellers 'win' latest round in eviction fight

Residents on the UK's largest illegal travellers' site have won a temporary reprieve in their battle to stay.

A High Court judge has ruled that travellers at Dale Farm in Essex are entitled to an extension of an injunction stopping their evictions.

He adjourned the case until Thursday saying the courts needed first to rule on the legality of their removal.

Basildon council has been involved in a 10-year battle to clear 51 illegal plots from the site.
