Security teams have moved in to evict protesters against a controversial £94 million link road.
Up to 30 activists are defending trees and occupying tunnels in Crowhurst, near Hastings, as they try to disrupt the construction of the Bexhill to Hastings Link Road.
Protesters are reporting security guards and bailiffs, supported by Sussex Police, began attempts to evict the camp at 8am today.
The main camp, which has been in place since December 21, is located close to Adam’s Farm, Crowhurst.
Sussex Police have confirmed 12 people have been arrested in incidents relating to the protest since it began a month ago.
East Sussex County Council, which is funding the majority of the road, claimed it is needed to create space for jobs, homes and offices.
