Have your say

Travellers who were ordered to leave a section of public land in Bridlington last year have returned to the same spot.

Caravans began arriving at Jubilee Woods off Bessingby Road yesterday evening (Wednesday June 13).

Travellers are believed to have accessed the site by removing bollards owned by East Riding of Yorkshire Council

It is believed they accessed the site by removing bollards at an entryway to the rear of the woods, which backs out on to Aldi's car park.

Last year, the Free Press revealed mess and rubbish left behind by travellers at the same location cost the taxpayer £5,000.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council had already spent £28,000 on erecting metal bollards designed to keep them out.

But the travellers gained access by taking away a removable bollard, used by maintenance staff to cut grass at Jubiliee Woods.
