Heathrow squatters face eviction

Squatters protesting against the planned expansion of Heathrow airport face eviction after a four-year stand.

A group of squatters who have spent the last four years living on land close to Heathrow airport are facing eviction.

The Grow Heathrow group in Sipson village moved onto the derelict site, which had originally been earmarked for airport expansion. Bailiffs are expected to evict the squatters but have yet to turn up.

BBC reporter Karl Mercer talked to John McDonnell, Labour MP for Hayes and Harlington, and local resident Tracy Howard.
