A group of travellers have taken up residence of Lovemead Car Park in Duke Street, Trowbridge, with several large caravans, leaving just over half of the car park available for motorists.

The travellers arrived in the car park earlier today and Wiltshire Council said they have been ordered to leave by 6pm today, otherwise a Section 61 order will be served requiring them to leave.

When approached the travellers refused to comment.
