"Riot police and bailiffs were met with a hail of missiles today as they moved in to clear Britain's biggest illegal travellers' site. Two caravans were deliberately set on fire, forcing the police to retreat momentarily as gas cylinders exploded. Activists bolted themselves to the gates as the eviction operation, estimated to have cost £22 million, got under way after a 10-year legal battle." (10/19/11)
