Three caravans and a van arrived at around 10.30am this morning (Tuesday) after moving on from an encampment in Meldreth.

As The Crow arrived on the scene police and North Herts District Council officers were speaking to the travellers.

A female traveller said: “We’re not causing any harm to anyone, we just want to stay here as long as we can.

“We keep ourselves to ourselves and we are not causing any disturbances.”

Nearby residents were shocked to see the caravans near their houses.

Gladys Edwards, of Furze Grove, said: “It’s terrible. I’m surprised to see it as it is a residential area and a playing field.

“We have been here for 25 years and we haven’t seen anything like it.”
