First published in News by , Reporter

Travellers remain encamped at multiple sites around Brighton.

Two large groups of travellers remained at Wild Park in Moulsecoomb and on a former BMX track in Sheepcote Valley on Friday.

Smaller groups of travellers were alos still on land adjacent to Ditchling Road, a car park in Stanmer Park and along the roadside at the east end of Black Rock, Madeira Drive.

Travellers staying in vehicles on-street at Hartington Road, Birdham Road and Vale Park have been issued notices.

There were an estimated 20 trailers at Wild Park when Brighton and Hove City Council officers and police carried out welfare checks.

Proceedings are going forward to arrange for a court order to evict the travellers.

Council officers have distributed letters informing occupants of the Sheepcote Valley site that the land is contaminated and living on it may increase risk of ill health.
