More travellers have been spotted in Warwick.

A group of travellers moved onto a site in Ophelia Drive over the weekend.

The Warwickshire County Council’s unauthorised Gypsy and Traveller encampments page says: “We have received numerous reports over the last 24 hours of an encampment at the above location, the land owner is being contacted and will be dealing.”

On Friday a group of travellers had moved onto Saltisford Common.

A spokesperson from Warwick District Council said: “At Saltisford Common the Notice to Leave has expired so the relevant paperwork has been passed to our solicitors, who have obtained a court hearing for this Friday.

“At Ophelia Drive/Portia Way we have visited the site today (Tuesday) with the police and served the Notice to Leave paperwork.”
