Travellers set up on Somerset field with chickens, horses and dogs
A handful of travellers have pitched up on a field in Weston-super-Mare. A group that is reportedly made up of five caravans and a pickup truck have been spotted on the field alongside Walford Avenue with a number of animals. Chickens, horses and dogs have been seen along the pavements and grass.
: Plans for Afghan refugees to be rehomed in Somerset This comes just a week after a large group of travellers pitched up in Cheddar, forcing business to close and sports teams to have games cancelled.
The travellers bought along horses which were roaming along the pavements
As you pass the Riverbank Medical Centre, the adjacent fields are now occupied by the travellers and their animals. All the animals are free to roam next to the busy road, with no form of control placed on the horses.
Its thought the travellers arrived yesterday (August 25th)
Councillors have visited already and will return again on Monday to complete health and welfare checks before asking them to leave the land.
This same group are believed to have previously occupied a piece of private land off Elm Drive. Back in June, it was reported that North Somerset Council were considering a high court injunction to block traveller encampments in the town.
