TRAVELLERS – LATEST UPDATE

I have received the update below from the police (WYP): 

“I have attended the recreation ground this evening and spoken with the travellers who haven’t given an indication as to how long they intend to remain, however it does appear that some are from the previous site on the university ground near to Weetwood police station. I’ve also spoken with some residents and advised that we will be monitoring the area with visible patrols.

The WYP traveller liaison officer is meeting with LCC and the university tomorrow at the location to assess and progress any action required, i.e. applying for a court order. As you are aware our powers a limited when dealing with these type of situations but we also understand the worry that this places on the immediate community, therefore we will support the local residents with any concerns they may have.”
