On Friday, 31st March, Bailiffs turned up at 461 Westferry Road, a squatted Fire Station and home to about 25 people. The squat was locked and barricaded with about 25 people inside, but bailiffs, security men and police did have neither bolt cutters nor a locksmith. The 1-ft metal torch they brought did not impress and was generally of no use due to bright sunshine. One of the occupants was seen climbing up a 5-stories high metal tower in the yard of the firestation, thus proven unremovable.
