The company behind a multi-million pound shopping complex in Bradford have been successful in removing a group of demonstrators - who had taken over the Broadway site.

Occupy Westfield said they set up camp in the area known as the Bradford hole because they wanted to force the council to get on with building work. The area was cleared in 2006 to make way for a shopping centre, but has remained undeveloped since.

Westfield Shopping Towns previously wrote to the campaigners to say their actions are counter productive and could put off retailers. Today demonstrators have been forced to move but say they are now transferring to another area near the site.
