Statement from Hull City Council: Tent City - 15/11/16
""Hull County Court has today granted an order to Hull City Council, which will be served on the Tent City protesters later today. It instructs them to remove their encampment from Queen's Gardens by 16.00hrs on Wednesday 16 November. We hope the organisers of the encampment will cooperate fully with the legal ruling so that the land can be returned to public use.

""Our priority remains to get rough sleepers off the street. Since the protest arrived in Hull we have successfully found accommodation for six of the ten rough sleepers. Whilst the camp is being removed, outreach workers from our partners Humbercare and Emmaus will be on hand to assess the needs of anyone who is still at the site so we can offer them hostel accommodation.

""The Court adjourned Hull City Council's application for an injunction to prevent them from setting up camp elsewhere in the city. The hearing will be heard tomorrow.""
