Bournemouth Protesters Evicted

The Town Hall grounds are now clear and fully accessible to members of the public.

Three bailiffs moved onto the site at 7am this morning (Friday 11th November), supported by Town Hall Facilities Management staff.

However, no forcible eviction was necessary as the anti-capitalist group Occupy Bournemouth packed up their own belongings peacefully upon arrival of the bailiffs. The protesters also cleared away any rubbish generated by the camp and the site has been left clean and tidy.

Some tents had been packed up overnight, with four remaining this morning, thought to be occupied by up to six protesters.

The site was clear within 45 minutes of the bailiffs' arrival.

Police officers were present on standby but no intervention was required.
