Egham squatters lose out

Squatters in an eco village near the Magna Carta memorial in Runnymede have lost their challenge against a Court order evicting them.

The group known as Diggers started camping in 2012 at the site which was formerly a campus of Brunel University.

The High Court Judge ruled that there had not been any error in the decision made by the County Court in June when it granted the eviction order.

The owner of the land, Orchid Runnymede Limited, has planning permission to develop the land for student housing, a care home for the elderly and private and affordable housing.

That’s before you even take into account the estimation there will be 40% more passengers using the rail networks by 2043.

London’s Mayor Boris Johnson is urging us to get behind Crossrail2, which is expected to add another 10% to London's rail capacity.

The proposal is to build an underground line at Wimbledon linking it to Tottenham Hale and New Southgate in North London.

Other stations that would benefit from the multi - billion pound scheme, include Kingston, Surbiton and Epsom.

Although it wouldn’t be ready until 2030, Kingston’s Conservative MP James Berry says it is the only answer.



Opponents of the scheme have cited accessibility for the disabled, impact on the environment, and cost as reasons why the scheme should not go ahead.

Network Rail says;

We received over 5000 responses to the Crossrail 2 consultation undertaken in the summer of 2014. A report on the consultation was published in autumn 2014. This included a detailed analysis of the responses received.

We have carefully considered all feedback and our responses to the issues raised in the consultation are set out in the following pages. Additional new information about the potential impacts of Crossrail 2 has been included where this is available.

Full details about previous Crossrail 2 consultations are available at www.crossrail2.co.uk.

The 2014 consultation provided the public with the opportunity to view and comment on potential changes to the Crossrail 2 route consulted upon in 2013 and consulted on specific route options along three parts of the route.

They took to the stage at the Rock 'n' Horsepower charity concert at Hurtwood Park Polo Club last night in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.

Rod paid tribute to missing members Ronnie Lane, who died in 1997, and Ian McLagan, who died last year.

All money raised from ticket sales at yesterday's gig at the club, belonging to Kenney Jones, was handed to the charity. Jones has suffered from the disease.

The Faces, who formed in 1969, released their final album Ooh La La in 1973. Rod went on to pursue a solo career, while Ronnie Wood joined the Rolling Stones, and Kenney Jones, The Who.

They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
