A group of travellers has now set up camp on a park in Kingsthorpe.

It is understood the group, although it has not been confirmed, is the same group of travellers' who were ordered to leave Abington Park at 3pm today by Northamptonshire Police.

The new encampment has now set up on Kingsthorpe Recreation Ground, off Harborough Road.

More than 10 caravans, motorhomes and accompanying vehicles moved onto the football pitches of Abington Park Crescent yesterday (Wednesday, June 6).

The group was using this entrance to make their way into the camp.

Workmen were seen installing rows of wooden bollards along the length of the street a week ago - but it seemed the group had driven around them.

The camp are on the park, next to the Northampton & District Indoor Bowling Association.
