Travellers on-site

Leave a comment

Please be advised that travellers have broken down some fencing and settled outside the maintenance huts around 20:30 on 23rd July.

The police were called and joined by around 200 residents. The two men were arrested for criminal damage and assault, but the rest of them remain on-site with a few caravans (between 3-5).

Peter Hunt (owner of the land) has been informed and stated “will do what needs to be done”. We only hope that he reacts promptly to this matter as the police are unable to evict them from private land.

Please everyone be safe, vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour or further encroaches to the police and us.

Remember, we all represent the wider community, so be sensible and we’ll get this resolved as urgently as we possibly can.
