Braintree: Residents refuse to pay council tax after weeks living next to illegal travellers site

Furious residents are refusing to pay council tax after living next to a filthy illegal travellers site for seven weeks.

After a failed eviction attempt on December 7 and with another planned this week, they finally left of their own accord on Friday.
