John Baron, Conservative MP for Basildon and Billericay, offers hope of a peaceful Dale Farm site clearance:
"I'm hoping for a peaceful solution to this and a peaceful site clearance. I think we are going to see a fair bit of negotiation in order to achieve that. But at the end of the day this is a site clearance.
"We have always had moral right on our side in this argument, and I want us to maintain that moral right, right through to the end.
"This site will be cleared, but I don't want to sacrifice moral right for speed."
