Gypsies living on an illegal development in Meriden have been allowed to stay on site for a while longer because of the bad weather.
The travellers, led by Noah Burton, must vacate the greenbelt site they have been occupying for three years off Eaves Green Lane, in Meriden, by April 21, following a High Court hearing.
The group had agreed to leave by Sunday after hammering out a deal with the High Court and Solihull Borough Council a year ago.
But Marc Willers, representing the travellers, made two new applications to remain and also appealed to court to allow the group to leave when “spring had really sprung.”
Mr Justice Bean dismissed both applications but said the group could remain on the site until April 21, because of the unseasonably bad weather.
Mr Bean said: “For the record, it is the 26th March and there are five days to go to the expiry of the original order.
“The weather in the last few days in the Midlands and throughout the rest of the country has been extraordinarily cold.
“There has been freezing conditions and more has been forecast for the next few days.
“I am prepared to suspend the injunction for a further 21 days.”
The travellers have been given until May to restore the site.
