It is being reported today (Friday) that travellers have moved onto the large green space just off Dallington Park Road.

A group of around 14 caravans with accompanying vans and cars arrived on Errington Park, off Ryeland Road in Duston, on Saturday evening (May 13).

By Wednesday this week (May 15) the travellers had left the site, leaving behind piles of rubbish, human waste and gas cannisters.

During their four-night stay in Duston, Northamptonshire County Council received 65 complaints about the travellers.

Travellers then pitched up at Kingsthorpe Rec Ground on Wednesday morning.

It was not confirmed if the group in Kingsthorpe were the same travellers that has left Duston.

Today (Friday) it is being reported by local residents that the travellers have left Kingsthorpe.

Many Duston residents were upset to see an alleyway near Errington Park littered with human waste.

At a similar time a large number of caravans descened onto Dallington Park.

Northamptonshire County Council has been approached for comment today.
