Bailiffs and police began a brutal eviction of Travellers at the Dale Farm site in Essex last week.
Most of those facing eviction marched off the site with their supporters on Thursday of last week rather than face more violence and arrests.
Since then, it appears that bailiffs carrying out the eviction may have broken the law. Eyewitnesses report bailiffs removing gates and fences without giving the
48-hours notice that courts required them to provide.
Barrister Marc Willers, who has represented the Travellers, intervened after bailiffs also tried to remove trailers from three legal plots.
