High Court fight to evict Gypsies

UK, 2.3.2007 10:11, (BBC)

Gypsy families who set up an illegal camp on land in North Curry near Taunton have lost their latest battle to be allowed to stay.

A planning enquiry had already ordered the Gypsies to leave the land but six families submitted fresh planning applications last November.

They were rejected by Taunton Deane Council which will now go to the High Court for an injunction to evict them.

The Gypsies bought the land in 2005 and have submitted several applications.

An inquiry in September 2005 ruled the encampment was illegal and that the group of 16 families had 12 months to vacate the Somerset site.
