Photos: Clean-up begins as travellers leave Burnham-On-Sea car park

A large group of travellers pitched up in Burnham-On-Sea's seafront car park left the town on Monday evening (July 1st) with a trail of litter left behind.

The group, comprising almost 20 vehicles, had arrived in The Esplanade car park next to B&M early on Sunday evening, occupying scores of spaces at the southern-most end. But they left the car park on Monday night amid legal action.

Sedgemoor District Council, which owns the car park, had served a legal notice on the group on Monday morning.

The council's Clean Surroundings Team is cleaning away the litter from hedges, paths and the car parking bays.

A separate group of travellers is still pitched up on the Bank Street Car Park in Highbridge - and legal action is underway with Sedgemoor trying to get them moved as well.
