There were celebrations at Dale Farm in Essex yesterday as residents of the Dale Farm Traveller’s site heard that they had won a last-minute court order delaying their proposed eviction from the site. The 400 Travellers and Gypsies won the injunction after bailiffs had earlier moved onto the site to remove campaigners opposing the eviction. Dale Farm is home to 87 families, most of whom are Irish Travellers. The residents own the land but do not have planning permission for their dwellings. A further hearing will take place on Friday. Time Out photographer Elisabeth Blanchet was at the site yesterday as the residents heard news of the injunction (above).
