A group of about 30 traveller caravans is to be moved on after setting up camp in Northampton.

Northamptonshire County Council sent its countywide traveller unit to the encampment, which is just off Gladstone Road, in Kings Heath.

They arrived overnight on Sunday and the council believes the travellers to be the same group who were at a football club car park near Sixfields last week.

After being served with a notice during Monday, the group must move away by this evening.
