After 10 months of occupation by local residents, Oxfords last remaining boatyard, Castle Mill boatyard, finally succumbed to the forces of darkness this morning when it was evicted by dozens of bailiffs, security guards and police. The boatyard’s owners, public corporation British Waterways, want to sell the land for development despite planning permission for the site having been repeatedly refused.
