A Northamptonshire County Council spokesman said on behalf of the Countywide Traveller Unit: “We will be issuing a notice tomorrow, giving the travellers 24 hours to move on.

“If the encampment has not gone by tomorrow, we will be pursuing court proceedings.”

Last week, a travellers' camp was pitched up on Victoria Park for seven days after ignoring council notices to leave.
