Travellers have left the Embankment in Peterborough a week after moving their caravans on to the land.

A spokesman for Peterborough City Council said the travellers had left today (Friday, July 3) after an eviction notice was secured from court.

The spokesman added that the area was now being cleaned.

Travellers have been evicted off two previous sites in Peterborough recently, prompting Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson to criticise the response by the police.
