A GROUP of travellers set up camp at Locke Park.

Four caravans appeared on the basketball courts next to the car park on Thursday morning.

A resident on Keresforth Hall Road said it was the second group to pitch up since August.

She added: "They come and go. There was a group here in August and they were here for about four weeks but I don't know if it's the same ones or not.

"They haven't been a nuisance yet, but you watch, there will be six more tomorrow."

Another man can see the travellers from his windowand said they should not be on the park.

He added: "It must be a horrible life, not knowing where you're going. They will be here for a few days until they get moved on to somewhere else where they're not wanted, before being moved on again.

"I feel a bit sorry for them."
