A GROUP of travellers living on Aldham House Lane playing fields have been evicted.

A second group have also been evicted from a site on Netherwood School off Mitchells Way.

Barnsley Council originally served the travellers a notice at the beginning on July.

When the travellers refused to move legal procedures were put in place to evict them.

Barnsley Council blocked off Aldham House Lane fields with their vans to stop the travellers setting up camp there again.
