COUNCIL officers will be heading to court this week in a bid to remove travellers from a village green.

Adur District Council staff will be in court in order to obtain legal permission to remove travellers from The Green in Southwick as travellers remain on the site.

In neighbouring Worthing, travellers have now moved on from George V Avenue and open space at the junction of West Parade and Bernard Road and a clean-up operation has been carried out.
