Latest traveller encampment in Northampton handed a court order to leave
A traveller encampment that pitched up on Delape Park four days ago has been issued a court order to move.
On Monday, a group comprising of 14 caravans moved onto the park off London Road, shortly after a similarly sized encampment had left Victoria Park.
A Northamptonshire County Council spokesman said on behalf of the Countywide Traveller Unit: “Town Magistrates have issued a notice for the Travellers to vacate the unauthorised encampment.
"The group has until Monday morning to vacate the site. Six of the 14 vans have already left.”
