Dale Farm: travellers' eviction protest at Basildon Council

Residents of the UK's largest illegal travellers' site are staging a demonstration outside Basildon Council in protest at being evicted.

The council is due to clear illegal pitches at Dale Farm, Cray's Hill, from 19 September after a 10-year dispute.

Travellers own the site but not all plots have planning permission.

On Thursday, Prime Minister David Cameron backed the council and said it was an issue of fairness.
