Bailiffs who were attempting to evict a cancer patient from his home were blocked by a crowd of hundreds of people and for the second time in the past six months.
The Express reports: More than 500 supporters today flooded the streets outside Tom Crawford’s home today to help the grandfather defend his property.

The 63-year-old, who has lived in his home for more than 27 years, has said he “would rather die” than leave the three-bedroom bungalow.
Mr Crawford has been battling authorities over claims he still owes £43,000 in outstanding mortgage repayments.
Last July, some 300 strangers successfully blocked bailiffs from turning up to the bungalow in Carlton, Nottinghamshire, after Mr Crawford released a video on YouTube begging for help.
And today, exactly six months after their first eviction attempt, bailiffs were foiled for a second time.
Bailiffs arrived at the property in a white Ford Transit van and black Mercedes at around 11am but were blocked by a swarm of supporters.
Dozens of the 500-strong crowd, many of whom had started gathering from 7am this morning, were wearing ‘Je Suis Tom’ t-shirts as well as the grandfather-of-two’s trademark straw hat.
