ADUR Council has opted not to tolerate travellers trespassing on land at Halewick Lane in Sompting and has served a notice requiring them to leave by 2pm today.

Should the travellers remain, the council will issue court proceedings immediately in order to secure the land.

The decision followed a welfare visit yesterday.

Around 20 caravans arrived at the site on Friday night.
