MP presses TfL to evict illegal traveller camp

Mike Freer MP was made aware of a traveller encampment which appeared on TfL land at A406, NW11, near Henlys Corner on Friday 5 October. He immediately raised this matter with TfL, pressing them to take the legal action necessary to evict the travellers as soon as possible. He also contacted the police Borough Commander asking him to monitor the situation closely. Conservative Councillor Dean Cohen also made representations to TfL.

TfL has since served the formal demand requiring the travellers to leave the site. Unless the police decide to invoke particular Public Order powers, the legal process can take some days to be completed. Mike will continue to monitor this situation closely and will make further representations as necessary.
