Police enter Dale Farm

Essex Police officers have this morning entered the Dale Farm site following intelligence which informed the commanders that anyone entering the site was likely to come up against violence and a serious breach of the peace would occur

Intelligence received indicated protesters had stockpiled various items with the intent of using these against bailiffs and police.

The first officers on the site were attacked with missiles being thrown including rocks and liquids. These officers were fully equipped to deal with this situation.

Two protestors were tasered and one person has so far been arrested.

Consistent attempts have been made, both on Tuesday and this morning, to negotiate with protesters to leave the site peacefully.
