London hermit Daniel Pike (http://hermitary.com/around/?p=1360) has lost his bid to keep his hut. As a Daily Mail byline notes:
Daniel Pike built his home in a forest on the outskirts of a north London from clay and other foraged items. 28-year-old lived there for four years after being made homeless but Woodland Trust demanded he leave. Today he watched in tears as structure was destroyed, leaving just a flat plot of land where it once stood. He was arrested for obstructing a court official as it happened and is now living in his mother’s house.
