A report by BBC London published on 15 Feb 2019, explains how another 'land grab' controversy is taking place, this time on the Thames just outside London.

"A battle has broken out on the River Thames about who owns and controls a huge section of river bank near Hampton Court. No-one had ever previously tried to register ownership of the land, but now the Environment Agency is attempting to, they face a legal battle with a tight-knit boating community based there who are worried about their future. Gareth Furby has the story. "
