SHERIFF officers were today preparing to move in to evict bypass protesters living in trees in Dalkeith Park.
The showdown comes after the group, fighting against the felling of trees to make way for a £30 million A68 bypass, refused to leave the treetops despite being served an eviction notice.
An eviction hearing was due to take place at Edinburgh Sheriff Court this morning, with the sheriff officers preparing to move in later in the day.

18-11-2005 02:21The rampART social centre has been served with a noise abatement order this week after claims of so-called statutory nuisance during samba band practise on the 9th Nov. Breach of the order could result in prosecution and upto 20,000 pouns fine and seizure of 'noise making equipement'.
Samba practise has been taking place at the rampART from around 8pm till 10pm most wednesdays for the last few months. However the noise excaping the building on the 9th was greater than previously due to a smashed window pane at the front of the building.
There is discussion about the possibility of appealing the noise abatement order as there are good grounds to overturn the order. However, no legal aid is available for such an action and failure would result in thousands of pounds in court costs. Additional it might result in an order against a named person instead of simply 'the occupier'.
Bring your bageuttes, carry your croisants, fetch your fromage, leave your car at home.
