It has only been six weeks since an encampment was last given orders to leave the Northampton Borough Council owned park.

On that occasion, eight caravans were stationed opposite the University of Northampton’s Avenue Campus.

Eyewitnesses have also reported a traveller encampment in the Grange Park area of Northampton over the weekend.
