Clashes as police evict squatters

Struggles between police and 50 squatters broke out on the streets of Brixton in south London yesterday, as the community were forcefully evicted from the flats they had lived in for 10 years.

One man was arrested after jumping on the specialist officers who moved in on Coldharbour Lane with fire crews at 9am, as Lambeth Council acted to end alleged antisocial behaviour.
