Campaigners fighting construction of the M11 link road in north-east London were last night facing eviction from an ancient chestnut tree after the High Court granted the Department of Transport a possession order for the part of George Green, Wanstead, on which the tree stands.

The protesters had claimed the tree was a dwelling because letters had been delivered there by the Post Office.
