Caravans which moved onto an Ipswich park last week and set up camp are understood to have left there this afternoon.

Around 10 caravans and other vehicles are believed to have moved in to Bourne Park, in the south of the town, on the evening of September 9.

They are thought to have gained access through the Stoke Park drive entrance of the park.

Council officials had been looking to “secure possession” of the site earlier this week, a process that is no longer necessary.

An Ipswich Borough Council spokesman said: “We had started the process of regaining possession, but we were informed they had left the site at around 4.30pm today.”
