Illegal Roma camp 'puts safety and public heating at risk'

Out of the 50 illegal Roma camps in northern Paris, one has attracted far more attention than the rest. That's because it's situated on land that belongs to the company responsible for maintaining France's railway network. The RFF says the Roma are blocking trains to a heating plant that supplies large parts of Paris, while their proximity to the busy suburban rail line, the RER C, places lives in danger.
