BACKGROUND

Constant & Co., the bailiffs, evicted families from two yards at Hoverfield, Wickford, on Tuesday - and drove a JCB through the fencing of a third yard which was supposed to be protected by a High Court injunction.

Senior police officers refused to intervene, saying Constant needed "access", despite the fact there is a lane leading
to the plot of land they were entitled to clear.

Keith Lomax, the solicitor, has obtained an injunction protecting 41 named persons from eviction. Normally, this would be
accepted by a council as blanket coverage pending the Judicial Review application, even though a few yards are not covered.

But Basildon is headed by Tory Malcolm Buckley, who has pledged to evict all 220 "unauthorised" caravans from the district.
The legal department stated on Friday, "The council is giving no guarantee that it will not take action against those sites
not covered by injunctions."

We have the law on our side - as Constant has no right to come up the private Oak Lane, which is not covered by the Enforcement Notice and the warning given us all to Quit by midnight on Sunday (31 July).

Lomax has written to the council warning that any eviction attempt will breach the injunction and be in contempt of the High Court Order, and will violate our human rights.

BUT WITHOUT YOUR PRESENCE and the backing of Human Rights Monitors, we fear our children will again be terrorised and our rights bulldozed into the ground.
