New unauthorised encampment settling on Ealing Common

An Acton resident has alerted Cllr Joanna Dabrowska via Twitter to a new settlement on Ealing Common, believed to be the 31st such encampment in the borough this year.

Cllr Dabrowska has informed the local council parks officers as well as the local Safer Neighbourhood Team.

Another encampment was reported to have arrived in Fox Wood (in Hanger Hill ward) yesterday (Sunday). It has not yet been ascertained whether the occupants are the same as those who left Ealing Common on Saturday or the same as the group that has arrived this evening on the Common.
