This image was captured today when riot police stormed the Dale Farm travellers armed with batons, shields and firing tasers, despite promises the eviction would be peaceful. This morning’s surprise eviction was reminiscent of a war zone as police in riot gear used sledgehammers to clear the way for the bailiffs.
The clashes left six people injured and resulted in 23 arrests. The entire operation was estimated to have cost 18 million pounds.
