Terry Purcell took this picture of some of the caravans and vans setting up today in the park off the A23 London Road.

Brighton and Hove City Council’s traveller page says: “We will be visiting this site with the police as soon as practicable┬áto carry out a community impact assessment┬áto determine the most appropriate course of action.”

Travellers are also currently camped at 19 Acres off Devil’s Dyke Road.

The council has visited this site and will be applying to the court for a possession order to evict them unless they leave voluntarily.

    why don’t B&HCC put in a suitable fence/gate so they can’t just drive onto the field?

    Why on earth don’t our incompetent council deal with these freeloaders properly. We are a soft touch which is why they are everywhere, ruining our city.

    Because the incompetent council are voted in by incompetent voters, and these useless residents get the council they deserve. The solution is clearly to abandon the failed Greek democratic model and give supreme executive power to me. I’d show them a thing or two.
