Paul Bristow said the group had even left faeces before departing on Sunday. And he also highlighted the recent announcement in the Queen’s Speech that police will in the near future be granted more powers to tackle unuathorised encampments. He said: “Police will soon get powers to arrest travellers and seize caravans if they set up illegal campsites on private or public land. Peterborough needs this.” Aragon Direct Services, the council-run company which clears up fly-tipping, said it cleared up the rubbish after the travellers had left.
