Travellers group given until tomorrow to vacate Northampton park or face 'police eviction'
An encampment of travellers, who yesterday pitched up at a different park in Northampton, have until Saturday morning to move.
A spokesman for Northamptonshire County Council said: “Police will be issuing the unauthorised encampment in Kingsthorpe Rec, Northampton, with a Section 61 Notice, which will give the Travellers until 11am on Saturday to vacate the land.
"Failure to do so would lead to a police eviction.”
More than 10 caravans, motorhomes and accompanying vehicles moved onto the football pitches of Abington Park Crescent on Wednesday (June 6).
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.
