Dale Farm: Miliband blames Basildon Council for eviction delays


Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband has blamed Basildon Council for the delays on the eviction of travellers living illegally at the Dale Farm site in Essex.

He said the law needed to be upheld but the council had not provided alternative sites or handled the issue sensitively.

He was commenting on the day Dale Farm residents returned to the High Court seeking a ruling that would declare their eviction "disproportionate and unlawful".
