Travellers' site set up near Newbury retail park

A COMMUNITY of travellers have set up camp near to a Newbury retail park.

Around 20 caravans have been pitched on a small piece of grassland in Equine Way near to Newbury Retail Park, just off Pinchington Lane.

Thames Valley Police have said they are unable to move the travellers on as it is up to the landowner to obtain an eviction notice.

The travellers' site is believed to have been set up just within the last few days.
