Basildon Council Concreted Over Dale Farm

This is Ray Bocking, former owner of Dale Farm. Here he explains how Basildon Council concreted Dale Farm and used it as a car scrap yard and road works waste site, dumping unused tarmac and hardcore for more than a decade.

Despite this evidence being crucial to the Dale Farm eviction on the grounds of the land being Green Belt and various media outlets interviewing Mr. Bocking, not one television news outlet has reported the story so far. At the end of this film you see the ITV East news team cut Bocking short for their live feed and flounder when asked if they will report it.

Last night the Guardian newspaper online was the only outlet to release an article on Ray Bocking’s story.
