Travellers evicted from Daventry playing field

DAVENTRY District Council (DDC) has pledged to prevent a repeat of this week’s scenes which saw travellers illegally camping on a playing field in the town.

The council is now looking to take steps to increase security on the Eastern Way Playing Field, next to the iCon building.

Around 10 caravans were on the field from Thursday to Tuesday evening until Northamptonshire County Council forced the travellers to move on.

The district council is now pushing ahead with its plans to increase the number of sites available for travellers in the district.
