Protesters take over London’s Sweets Way Estate

Residents of a housing estate in Barnet have held a further day of protest over plans to redevelop the area. 

Many of those living on the Sweets Way Estate have been moved out ahead of work to build new flats on the site. 

Protesters have called the evictions “social cleansing”.

Barnet Council said in a statement: "All of the families who have contacted Barnet Homes have been rehoused. 

“This has been very challenging because of the shortage of family sized homes in London."
