East Worthing and Shoreham MP says police can disrupt travellers

Have your say

AN MP has criticised the police’s lack of response to another influx of travellers to Lancing.

Tim Loughton, MP for East Worthing and Shoreham, claimed there was more the police could do to “disrupt the activities of future unwanted visitors to these illegal encampments” and said he had written to the chief constable to express his concerns and ask for a meeting.

Mr Loughton spoke out after the arrival of travellers at Lancing Manor Recreation ground on September 15, following which he said he was “inundated” with calls from angry residents who have had to “put up with substantial inconvenience for a second summer running”.
