The police presence outside the Camp for Climate Action ( http://www.climatecamp.org.uk/
) has been slowly building, with constant pressure for them to be allowed entry. This came to a head early this afternoon when they threatened to enter forcibly.
After hasty discussions a compromise was reached that would see a small number of police allowed to enter the site escorted, on condition that they didn't film or search tents. This was then rejected by the police, who insisted they wanted unrestricted access at any time.
So far, they haven't actually attempted to enter the site by force, although the police helicopter has continued to make regular surveillance/intimidation flights over the camp.
