A 48 hours notice is set to expire today, giving bailiffs at Dale Farm free rein as they continue their destruction of the community.
Resident Mary Sheridan, who is temporarily staying with family on the legal half of the Crays Hill settlement, said “It’s finally hitting us, we’re seeing our homes destroyed. I just saw my cousin’s house broken apart. Now we have to pick up and find somewhere to go.”
The media have been unable to witness this due to Basildon Council’s media blackout. Journalists have been questioning the Council’s refusal to let press on site.
