Travellers have set up an unauthorised encampment at John Clare Park in Gunthorpe.

Three caravans were reported to Peterborough City Council yesterday (Wednesday).

A council spokesman said: “We have undertaken an initial visit and will start the process to move the group on.”

Another group of travellers are currently situated at a park in Beckingham, Orton Goldhay, despite being served an eviction notice.

The council said it will begin the eviction process if the group has not left by tomorrow morning (Friday).
