Huge traveller camp puts fear in heart of Town Centre residents

19th October 2019

Hordes of travellers have taken over the council car park opposite Sports Direct on Tulketh Street this evening, Saturday 19 October 2019

Shocked residents were bowled over when a caravan of caravans took over the car park just after 5pm this evening.

Already dogs are barking and young children are running wild.

Residents have called police but have been told it’s unlikely that they will be able to do anything to move the travellers until Monday afternoon at the earliest.

One resident told OTS they are now scared to leave their house and ho to work as they use the car park as a shortcut
