The bollards are designed to restrict entry to vehicles at Manor Park Farm in Eye after Travellers first gained access to the site two weeks ago.

There has always been space for a wooden bollard at the entrance to the footpath but after falling into disrepair/being vandalised in the past it had not been replaced.

Council cleaning teams also attended the park to carry out a full clean up after it was left full of litter, with trees chopped down and also with human waste left lying around.

“Moving forward, a site visit will be completed to investigate whether preventative measures can be improved further.”
