HAMPSHIRE Constabulary says it may send officers to assist Essex Police in the eviction of an illegal travellers site in Essex.

The clearance of controversial Dale Farm was due to begin yesterday but was deferred until at least Friday after a high court injunction.

No officers from the area are currently at the site in Crays Hill, but they will provide assistance if needed to keep the peace.

The officers will be from the force’s Mutual Aid Support Trained teams, stationed across Hampshire.
