Mid Devon, England - A squatter couple, Marcus Tribe and Sarah Harvey, have won their appeal and will be allowed to continue living in their small Mongolian style yurt on a seven-acre stretch of Nomansland, near Tiverton. The pair have lived on the site for the past six years but were told by the local government that they would have to demolish their home back in December. Marcus is a fifth-generation woodsman who, with his partner, lives a nearly self-sufficient lifestyle, subsisting on food they grow themselves.
