Travellers leave leisure centre car park

Editorial Correspondent 6th Feb, 2019 Updated: 11th Feb, 2019

TRAVELLERS have left Stratford Leisure Centre car park.

The illegal encampment arrived in the car park in Bridgeway last week and left on Friday (February 8) after Stratford District Council secured an eviction order from the court.

It is the second time this year travellers have set up camp in the centre’s car park.

Following the first eviction in January, the encampment made the short hop over to the recreation ground.

But this time barriers had been placed by the council along the entry to the recreation ground car park, ahead of the eviction.

The latest camp has not been seen in the area since.
