Five arrested amid angry scenes with police at eviction

Five people remain under arrest after a cancer patient was evicted from his home in Nottingham.

Angry supporters of Tom Crawford clashed with police near his bungalow in Carlton yesterday afternoon when bailiffs moved in.

The 64-year-old has been in a long running dispute with his bank over his endowment mortgage payments.

He believes the terms he took out in 1988 were changed by the now defunct Bradford & Bingley bank without him knowing, leaving his £43,000 in debt.

They said yesterday's repossession followed proper legal procedure, and they had an enforceable possession order for the property.


Nottingham tram network expansion milestone

Plans to make the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham the first hospital in the country to be served by tram will move a step closer tomorrow, with finishing works on the expansion of the city's tramline to Beeston and Chilwell set to take place.

To accommodate the works, there will be temporary traffic lights on Abbey Street/Abbey Bridge from tomorrow for two weeks and Gregory Street will be closed on both sides of the junction.

The extended system will link people to key employment sites and services, like the QMC and the University of Nottingham, and it will create jobs, both directly and indirectly, and is already helping to spark regeneration in the city.

Unfortunately, these works are likely to cause some disruption over the next couple of weeks so, where possible, people would be best to consider alternative routes, but we'll be working to support the contractor to try to minimise this disruption as far as possible.
