On Monday (April 11), an encampment of Travellers, that has now grown to include more than 20 caravans, arrived at Bretton Park.

The caravans are currently located right next to Bretton Water Park.

It is believed that the group accessed the site via a gate that had been left open at Eyrescroft.

A spokesperson said: “Officers have visited the site and undertaken initial assessments. We will now commence the process to move the group on.”
