Travellers invade Dobbies Car Park despite barrier blockade

30th January 2021

Travellers have yet again set up camp at the car park of Dobbies Garden Centre Southport, causing havoc and reportedly abusing passing staff and shoppers.

A group of travellers have set up at a piece of car park land next to the entrance of Dobbies Car Park, which has previously become somewhat of a hotspot for caravans and the gypsy community.

However in recent months the site has been free of issues thanks to efforts by private security staff to set up bollards and posts to stop large vehicles accessing the site.

Residents reported like before that they drove in under the cover of darkness and immediately started behaving in an anti social manner.

There are at least a dozen caravans on site.
