The national eviction team has been employed to clear the wood
Two more climate change protesters have been arrested as eviction officers and police continue efforts to remove them from a wood in South Lanarkshire.
The campaigners have built a network of tunnels and tree houses at the Mainshill Wood Solidarity camp near Douglas.
They are opposing Scottish Coal's plans for an open cast mine on the site.
Nineteen protesters, 14 men and five women, were arrested on Monday. Police said two more woman had been detained.
A spokesman for the protesters said a crane had to be brought in to remove them from the tower of a fort they had erected.
He claimed that at least 30 others remained dug-in to the tunnels and tree houses and intended to stay for as long as possible.
Some of the campaigners have been camped at Mainshill for the past seven months.
They are supporting local people who have raised objections to Scottish Coal's plan to mine about 1.7 million tonnes of coal from the site located on Lord Home's Douglas estate.
A spokesman for the Douglas and Angus estate said the protesters were there illegally and efforts to evict them would continue until the site was cleared.
