Brighton and Hove City Council has confirmed the unauthorised encampment and has visited the site with the police to carry out a community impact assessment.

A spokeswoman for Brighton and Hove City Council said: "There was damage to the gate, so looks like a break in.

"The council’s traveller team has visited the site and is in discussion with the police on next steps."
