At 7.30 this morning, residents awoke to find an army of security guards all along Windsor View. They attacked anyone who tried to get near or go over the wall to the Mill Pond. They were abusive and very aggressive.
All morning, residents remonstrated with them and Mark Clyndes, agent for Green Tops was organising this assault. Many people still managed to get on to the Mill Pond, and climb trees, some opf which were felled with people still up them. By midday when the Forestry Commission arrived, and they were finally persuaded to stop, most had been felled.
