Eviction of Manchester Airport

Two out of the seven camps in Bollin Valley were invaded on Tuesday morning at 3.30am by the eviction mercenaries. There have been upwards of 10-11 arrests so far (midday Tuesday) and a siege situation is being laid. Potholers are expected to start digging into the tunnels which extend into the valley sides quite soon.
