A group of travellers have set up an encampment in Westwood, Peterborough.

The group are said to be in Hartwell Way, opposite Ashton Road.

The travellers are believed to be different individuals to those who were evicted from Bretton Park earlier today (Friday, May 27).

A spokesman for Peterborough City Council said the travellers had only recently moved in,

He added: “We’ve been informed three vehicles have turned up on site.

“We will inform the police so they can assess the situation over the weekend.

“If they are still there after the bank holiday, we will issue a notice to leave.”
