Travellers party in the park after scaring kids away

Frightened children have returned to their parents in floods of tears after being chased away from a playground by raving travellers this afternoon (Saturday 26 August).

An illegal party is in full swing at Town Lane park after the land was taken over by a cohort of travellers earlier on this afternoon.

Their loud and raucous behaviour scared off local children who were playing in the park during the sunny weather and when some of the travellers became intoxicated and seemingly intolerable, the children quickly left.

One parent who contacted OTS News said: “my boy came home in floods of tears after a ‘traveller’ was shouting and swearing. “He’s only 10 but he knows wrong from right and what’s going on in that park is definitely wrong. “The council need to get on and sort them out asap”
