Travellers - Littledown Centre
I’m afraid we have had another incursion by travellers, this time in the Littledown Centre car park, where they arrived on Friday night. We have received this update from our parks team this morning:
I am sorry to say that on Friday 18th June at around 2200 hours we had 10 caravans arrive in the car park at the Littledown leisure centre
Our legal department will push for a court hearing first thing Monday morning
Having spoken to the travellers it is apparent they are going to stay as long as possible
Jane and I are liaising with council officers and have ensured that the normal precautions have been taken over further incursions both at the Littledown Centre and in King’s Park. We will of course keep you up to date.
