Travellers have arrived in Kingsteignton, where they have set up camp on an area of green space in the town.

The group arrived on green open space in Sandygate Mill on Tuesday night, and Teignbridge District Council have said they will take the ‘necessary legal action’ to move them on.

A spokesman from Teignbridge District Council said: “We can confirm that late last night travellers arrived on a green open space at Sandygate Mill, Kingsteignton.

“The Council is following procedure and will take the necessary legal action to have the travellers moved on.”

Travellers have previously used the same space to set up camp, and in July 2015 when they previously set up on the green space police investigated a violent clash between travellers and local people in the town.
