Claims Dale Farm travellers are back

Former residents of Dale Farm return hours after bailiffs completed their £18m clearance of the illegal travellers' site in Essex.

At least 10 families have moved back onto the UK's largest illegal travellers' site.

The action to remove caravans and chalets from 51 unauthorised plots on Dale Farm, was completed on Monday and Basildon Council has obtained an injunction to prevent reoccupation of the site.

Dozens of caravans are understood to be lined up around the edge of the land.

The leader of Basildon Council says he will apply for new injunctions to move them on.
