'King Arthur' evicted from StonehengeBreaking News
King Arthur Pendragon, a druid formerly known as John Rothwell, set up camp on the edge of the site last June, believing that people should be allowed to walk around and touch the stones, which have been roped off since 1977.
Pendragon, 55, who changed his name by deed poll in 1976, has been living in a caravan on the A344 near Stonehenge since last June.
The former soldier and Hell's Angel has now been banned from entering the site after Wiltshire County Council objected on the ground of trespass and launched legal proceedings.
Mr Pendragon however has refused to accept the ban despite and vowed to maintain his vigil, with the full support of the Council of British Druid Orders. He could face forcible eviction if he fails to leave the site by May 3.
