The Times (p28) Law Report prints the outcome of Regina v Brighton and Hove Council. The Queen's Bench Division refused the application of Samantha Marmont and Sarah Dymond to quash the decision of Brighton and Hove to repossess council property occupied by them and other travellers.

The judge ruled that where a local authority was evicting travellers through proceedings under Order 113 of the Rules of the Supreme Court for repossession of its own land, it was not under an obligation to take account of the DoE ruling 'Gypsy Sites Policy and Unauthorised Camping' on behaving humanely.
