Some of the travellers who were evicted from the illegal Dale Farm camp last year face being evicted again. After the eviction, they set up their caravans on Oak Lane next to their old site. But Basildon Council has now decided they must be moved on. Piers Hopkirk reports.
Plans to reopen a travellers' site near Meldreth in Cambridgeshire has been postponed until the new year to allow more time for residents to voice their concerns.
South Cambridgeshire Council were due to vote on the scheme this month, but the plan will now be discussed in the New Year.
Three men who were wounded in a shooting at a travellers' site in Peterborough are all said to be in a serious but stable condition in hospital.
The men, who are aged 41, 43 and 46, were shot on the Oxney Road site shortly after 10am on Monday.
Police are still looking for the gunman. Detective Inspector Dave Grierson said: "I would appeal to anyone who saw what happened, or witnessed people heading towards or away from the site at the time of the shooting, to call police."
Anyone with any information should call Cambridgeshire Police's Major Crime Unit on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
