Leyton Marsh: Porter’s Field eviction

According to reports yesterday and in the Evening Standard today the people occupying Porter’s Field have been moved.

Police took action after the Lee Valley Park obtained a court order.

Work on the temporary Olympic basketball structure has restarted. Meanwhile some protestors are now camped alongside Lea Bridge Road.

Local opinion is divided. My view is that since the building being erected is temporary for a once in a lifetime event it should be allowed. By this time next year it will have been removed and the grass relaid.

I feel much more concerned about what has happened to Middlesex Wharf opposite and the permanent building due to spoil downstream Essex Wharf.
