Occupy Nottingham protest camp eviction date moves
NOTTINGHAM City Council has lodged court papers to evict a protest camp from the city centre.
The Occupy Nottingham protest has seen around 50 people camping in the Old Market Square since October 15 to campaign against capitalism and government cuts.
The camp was handed an eviction notice by Nottingham City Council last week, giving them until 4pm on Monday to move or face legal action.
This deadline passed and the group remain at the site.

A city council spokesman said that following the submission of court papers, it expects to have a hearing within seven days to discuss the case.
If the hearing is not contested by the protesters, the council expects to get an eviction order next week.
However, if it is contested, the judge will direct how long before the next hearing when the matter will be determined.
