26.09.2002 07:44 | London

At a candle lit vigil on Sat 21st, around 50 local residents tore down fencing blocking off part of Crystal Palace Park in south London. The fencing had been erected by Bromley Council pending development of the park area. In previous years the site had been earmarked for a huge 18 screen UCI cinema but lobbying, protests and direct action were successful in stopping the development.
