Brixton Traders Face Eviction

Businesses in the Brixton railway arches who say they're facing eviction - have been given an extra two weeks to negotiate with the site's owner Network Rail. The Traders say a deadline to move out has been extended, but some say they're planning to fight to stay even longer.

In a statement, Network Rail said:

"This is an £8m investment that will benefit the whole of Brixton and provide traders in the area with excellent facilities. Of the 4,000 businesses in our London arch estate, fewer than 20 are let to national chains. We look forward to be able to welcome our traders back when the work is complete next year."
