Travellers leave Thatcham ... and a mess behind
Bathroom appliances left dumped behind cemetery
Travellers have left a site in Thatcham and everything, including a sink, in their wake.
Around 10 vehicles arrived on West Berkshire Council owned land behind Thatcham Cemetery and Pimpernel Place yesterday (Monday).
They have since moved on but have left piles of rubbish behind them.
A toilet, sink, bath tub, a vacuum cleaner and waste were among the items dumped on the grass close to the cemetery.
One resident said that he couldn't believe his eyes and described the scene as "a hell of a mess."
He added that he had been kept awake by travellers dogs barking during the night.
The resident said that the police had been called but they had only been able to move them away from houses.
The group of travellers in Thatcham follows a group leaving a small piece of grassland near Newbury Retail Park on Sunday evening.
