Businesses in the Blackheath Industrial Area near Happy Valley, Blue Downs, had to sharpen security at their premises after protesters targeted premises in a protest flare up yesterday morning.

The protest action came just two days after the same area came to a standstill on Monday morning when hundreds of Happy Valley residents blocked Wimbledon Road with burning tyres.

According to the ward councillor, Roelof Mare, the protest related to land-grabbing.
