Council Sneaks Into Kensal Rise Library At 2am To Strip It

Posted at 10:31AM Tuesday 29 May 2012

Council bosses were today accused of "cowardice and deceit" after they stripped a historic library in the early hours to evade campaigners.

Up to 15 security guards and 12 police entered Kensal Rise library at about 2am today to empty the library, taking books, photographs, commemorative plaques and murals.
