Scores of travellers have set up camp on Surrenden Field this morning.
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 to carry out a community impact assessment to 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.
