following the start of legal action.

several caravans and vehicles arrived on the South Esplanade, as
pictured here, on land between Quantock Court and the entrance to
Burnham Holiday Village last Friday.
stayed until Tuesday morning when Haven, which owns the seafront
land bordering the park, began legal proceedings.
spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We served the travellers
with a formal notice to move at 9am and they left soon afterwards
without any problems. We had the police in attendance, but they
were not needed."
arrival comes after a series of visits by travellers last year at
locations in and around Burnham, prompting action
to dissuade them from pitching up on public sites.
