Travellers at Lancing park going nowhere fast

TRAVELLERS that set up camp in Monks Rec in Lancing on Saturday are unlikely to be moved on anytime soon according to the parish council.

Six caravans and other vehicles arrived on Saturday morning, and the council is looking to hire a security firm to stop any more entering the site.

The funding for this, which could run into the thousands, will have to come from council reserves.

Parish clerk Colin Hunt said it was hard to say how long it would take to move the travellers on, but it could be a matter of weeks.
