ANGRY residents say they are ‘powerless’ as hundreds of travellers descended on their village on Friday.

Nepcote Green in Findon was occupied by almost 50 caravans over the weekend, when the travellers broke in and set up camp.

Broken bottles and dirty nappies have been found littering the streets since the travellers arrival on the council-owned land.

Villager Kate Merrick said: “The whole village is very, very angry.”
