Convoy of travellers evicted from Burnham-On-Sea park

-

Legal action to move a group of travellers from a Burnham-On-Sea park has successfully been completed. 

Five caravans with towing vehicles gained entry to the Winchester Road Park next to Burnham Infants School just after 4pm on Sunday – and they left today (Wednesday).

A Somerset Council spokesman had said: “The Council is aware of an unauthorised encampment on Winchester Park in Burnham-On-Sea and is following the normal legal process, supported by Avon and Somerset Police.”

“If residents are concerned about anti-social behaviour they should report this by calling police on 101.”

Police were called, as pictured here, but they were unable to stop them driving onto the park.

Somerset Council, which owns the land, had started proceedings.

It comes after dozens of travellers were evicted within 12 hours in Burnham-On-Sea on June 11th after they pitched up at the Cassis Close playing fields.
