Don't know if this story made it across the pond yet.
Long story short, travellers finally lose ten year battle to stay on land, started to get forcefully evicted today, shit was messy.
I'm really undecided on this. A school I worked at had a lot of travellers in it and I know a bit about the whole "culture", so I can kind of see both sides of the fence. Sure, they shouldn't be there and need to move on, but the fact that it's come to this is just plain disturbing.
As the majority of real life discussion I have had about this amounts to "Gypos need to gtfo" and "lol pikies" thought I'd put it up here instead.
