The occupiers received a tip off from Trinity rd police station which gave them advance notice that the baliffs and police were preparing to leave.
They arrived at about 10am and initially tried to keep the road open. This proved futile and the road outside has been closed for most of the day.
It took the baliffs at least an hour to gain access to areas of the building. Several people had positioned themselved on scaffolding tripods and ladders to make eviction more difficult.
The baliffs did manage to drag him back off the machine and back onto the roof. When he was lowered to the ground there were efforts made to de-arrest him.
A couple of Fascists with swastika tattoos were 'asked to leave' the demonstration, one of them sought refuge in a media van and was then escorted to safety by police.
Two people have locked on into concrete and attempts to remove them using angle grinders and sledgehammers are ongoing.
There has been a crowd of between 100- 300 supporters milling around for most of the day.
Get yourselves down there..
First attempt to get the occupiers down.
Baliffs man-handling protesters.
Good ol' FIT.
One of the occupiers brought down.
Police officers keeping the peace, as usual.
Horses were used to push the crowd around, the dogs were brought out at one point, and FIT were there, as usual, taking pictures.
These pictures were taken on a camera phone, so apologies for the quality...
