The Travellers who illegally camped in Bedford were evicted last night.

The group who illicitly set up home on the site in Thor Drive last Friday and who had been joined by other arrivals this week were moved on around 7.30pm yesterday evening.

Human waste had been left in bushes, along with a large amount of rubbish discarded on the grass embankment next to a children’s play area.

Baliffs acting on behalf of the landowner evcited the travellers off the land. Police were in attendance but a Section 61 order was not required.
