Peace campaigner Brian Haw will be removed from Parliament Square Gardens after his bid to launch a Court Of Appeal challenge to an eviction order was turned down.
Mr Haw’s long-standing presence on the pavement on the east side of Parliament Square is not threatened by the order.
It relates to his encroachment on to a small adjoining part of the gardens where he has pitched a tent.
Mr Haw is having treatment for cancer in Germany. His co-campaigner Barbara Tucker made today’s application to appeal.
After the appeal bid was lost, Mrs Tucker said she did not believe the eviction had anything to do with clearing the area for the royal wedding – ”it is about getting rid of our peace campaign”.
