travellers at apex park highbridge

Legal action has been stepped up against a small group of travellers who have been camped on grassland next to Apex Park in Highbridge for over ten days.

Sedgemoor District Council spokeswoman Claire Faun told Burnham-On-Sea.com that the council got the legal papers on Monday, “requiring them to leave forthwith.”

The group of travellers with four vehicles, pictured here, pitched up near to the park entrance off Marine Drive during the last week of June and have been in place ever since.

The vans and caravans, partly hidden behind trees, were still in place late on Monday evening (July 8th).
